Do you believe Lance Armstrong?

Now that Hamilton and Hincapie have testified seeing Armstrong using banned substances, do you still believe Armstrong?

We know his line of defense (never caught), but then there are those persistent allegations of the UCI shadylly handling of a 2001 doping offense.

So do you believe Armstrong when he claims he's clean?

Re: Do you believe Lance Armstrong?

Never believed him in the first place.

Back then everybody used, so for me it doesn't take anything away from his accomplishments. I believe he was clean on his comeback run, would be too big of a risk.

Re: Do you believe Lance Armstrong?

No one is clean on cycling these days, and that has been the case since the late 90's or so, my answer is NO, I don't believe him (or any cyclist btw)

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Do you believe Lance Armstrong?

Of course Lance wasn't clean. Only complete cycling nitwits would have believed otherwise.
Because Lance created his own myth, made a lot of money from gullible people and made many enemies along the way, his fall will be epic.

It seems Lance has finally lost the PR battle, as many media outlets are now calling him out. It took them ages to put one and one together. Now it's time to lose the legal battle as well.

Hopefully the UCI will be investigated as well. Levels of corruption there might put the FIFA to shame.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

He HAS. So now, let's turn the page. He's retired now, anyway. There are many other dopers to catch. I don't care about all these testimonies.

1) Wrong !

2) Lol, we know that bullshit: minus times minus equals plus. But it's still bullshit. Only for the fact that racing is easy for a doper.

Sorry, I can't let this pass. It's offensive, wrong and defamatory/slanderous. And most of all an insult to all my friends who are racing in the lower ranks as amateurs or pros.

How would you react if I said "no one is clean on tennis these days"?
