Uhm, yeah? If everybody doped, who cares? It's still so impressive what he did, it were different times. People are so focused on the word 'doping', and have made it into a witch-hunt, they value 'the rules' more than common sense. Just let the old legends be, it's guys like Armstrong that inspire kids of today to be able to do great things and start cycling. Not the guys in labcoats, who catch them because they took a forbidden substance (which all of his competitors took as well) and what for sure wasn't the only reason this man won 7 straight TDFs.
Now you destroy everything, you can't point out a winner because all the others were cheats as well. All you create now is a lot of black pages in the history books. Focus on today, right now the sport is clean (for sure there are dopers, but they seem to be outnumberd and are getting caught), now doping would give an unfair advantage. But back then? No.
