The only thing that sets cycling apart from other sports like tennis is that cycling actually fights doping.

The amount of shit it gets off the media and fans of other sports always kicking the boot in. There's been a lot of it today. Other people saying 'why do you follow such a drug infested sport' and stuff like that. Scandals like this aren't nice.

Having always been suspicious of Armstrong, I'm glad he's going to get what he deserves. Them TDF titles are best just left vacant cause there's hardly any definitively clean riders at that time. Ullrich? Basso? As doped as Lance was.
