Lance Armstrong’s sponsors hold on
Cycling legend stripped of his Tour de France titles
With new methods they could and should strip all other champions and medalists of their accomplishments.
How far back should this go? 10, 20, 30, 40 years? Are all the “teammates” returning the winnings Armstrong shared with them? Looks like the 7 TDFs titles are going to really worthy and clean riders. How many of them got caught doping? All? Not fair, singled out, he was tested, they found nothing, he is still a champion!!!
Does the ridiculousness of this only seem obvious to me and “Bikeride”?
Lance Armstrong’s blood was the only athletes blood that was stored for almost a decade. How was it stored? At any time was it transferred or stored in the same type of blood storage bag that they have speculated was used for “blood doping”? The USADA didn’t exist when this “evidence” was collected, so how the H*ll could the proper chain of evidence be maintained.
I was reminded of a quote by Mark Twain, which I paraphrase: It’s un-American, it’s un-British . . . it’s French. Appropriate in this case, I think.
