as usual some take a bike discussion into pedo playgrounds
you have to wonder why that subject is the first thing they think of
Even ardent supporters of Lance realise something is not as it should be
However the issue is not so much lance's wrong doing but the usda's bullying attempt to subvert the rules to then punish others who they claim subverted the rules, so allowing the very thing they claim to be trying to stop
Knowing someone is a drug proven professional cyclist (which lance never was) act against Lance whilst still allowing that individual to carry on professional racing would see a contradiction of the usda's venom towards Lance.
Lance was never caught cheating(if he ever did) so legally you must declare scientifically..and that is the standard the usda are charged to do..scientifically had never been 100% proven to be a cheat..the dna if you will in other cases
As to arrogance..I have yet to meet someone who is at the top of their field who isn't.
Did Lance use drugs or the ability to enhance his performance..given how many are saying ..hell yeah we all did it, then it would not be unreasonable to suggest he did but again not proof
have colleagues indicated he did? yes..of which some of those who have been 100% identified as drug cheats , are still allowed to professionally race and have seen a reduced ban/sentence
So was there an incentive for the usda to lower the consequences for those proven cheats and allow proven drug cheats to still race? of course..to get to Lance
The irony is...in order for the usda to get at Lance they have exposed themselves as a management team in dissaray, a team of scientific testers who could not catch one suspected individual and as such may have done more harm to their own reputation than Lance ever could do
