Personally I don't mind doping in cycling as long as all the ones that matter are doing it, since it allows for more spectacle in the mountain stages.
There are health risks from drug taking and sets a very bad example for amateur cycling and society in general.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
