I can’t deny I have always been an admirer of Lance Armstrong, and in a small way been inspired by his achievements. To do what he has done after coming back from cancer is quite amazing. So I hope that when the FDA investigation in the US is complete we can finally put the did he take drugs or didn’t he, to bed. If the guy is guilty he deserves to be punished, but if he isnt he should be left alone to enjoy his retirement from cycling, with fond memories of the good times. Lance has always claimed to be the most tested sportsman on earth. Whether that is correct or not, the tests in place which catch plenty of cheats every year, have never found anything from Lance. Now he is either very lucky, has the best masking agent every created, or is innocent. It looks to me as though if having tested the guy and found nothing, the next best evidance is use the testimony of people who have been proven to be cheats and liars themselves. Non of these guys ever tested positive whilst riding on a Lance led team. So come on give the guy a chance, and if there is no real evidance, leave the guy alone.
