I stopped posting on Lance-ish thread the Monday that USADA's decision was handed down (almost three weeks ago...). I got the outcome I hoped for and wanted atmo. But after seeing this news story I am piling on.

I fully agree. And I also am reiterating that the grand tour business model has long since lost its luster, relevance, and importance. The three week race is as close to the WWF and Rollerball as the sport can be. And we all lose as a result. I do not trust the sport going forward if a single rider or former rider is allowed to be part of the ordeal. Will I be entertained either way? Sure I will. Do I think anything will change without a complete fukcign housecleaning? No, I don't.Maybe it is good for the fans, but if you put athletes in a situation where they have no choice but to take illegal substances just to compete, that is wrong.
