Cycling is the bete noir of sports because of its doping reputation. Surely it was well deserved in the first place, but f*s, in most of the recent years there were more doping controls made in cycling than in all other main sports together. And let's not even talk about the quality of the controls... blood testing is standard in any cycling race, but rare in any other sport.

The OP took down prominent cyclists like Jan Ullrich, Ivan Basso, Alejandro Valverde, Michele Scarponi, etc. But cyclists were just a small number of the sportsmen named. What happened to the other ones?? If we go by the list of cyclists, they wouldn't all be Spanish. So who covered it up? Who silenced the whole thing?

If you're going to claim cycling is the dirtiest sport of all, then test all other sports like you test cycling. Then, sheer numbers will talk. Until then, no one can make a fair assessment.
And yet, you wish to destroy all blood testing by not punishing HES-cheaters.
