If Armstrong's revelations got cycling dropped from the olympics it would be an absolute tragedy for the likes of Laura Trott, Danni King and other british track cylists, who are still quite young, have never been implicated in doping etc. who are currently at the top of their game and would be favourites to win medals in the next one maybe two olympics. However, if the next olympics to include cycling is 12 years away, it may be too late for many that are at their peak now.
Indeed; so much time, effort and resources have been devoted to the Games by British Cycling staff & athletes that it would be a tragic waste. One suspects Dave Brailsford would not be a happy chap if the Olympic blockade did come about - talk about a lot of hard graft being undone.
