merckx regularly admitted to taking drugs!
Would be interested to see which quotes from merckx you refer to? Or are you simply referring to his three positive tests including that on the 69 Giro?
The sport of cycling was and still is sadly tainted by drugs - you're very naive to think any one branch of the sport is cleaner than the other.
besides have you seen the size of him? greatest cake easter of all time more like
Yes, excellent point, got me there

The fact mtb world champions like Cadel Evans have switched to the pro road peleton proves this is the pinnacle of the sport. Discuss.
Coppi is also an excellent champion. Sadly people are judged on what they have rather than could have achieved.
