He was the best cyclist the world has ever seen, even if he and athletes he competed against took substances deemed "illegal" by the sport.
I presume this is meant sarcastically, but just in case someone misunderstand and believes it - Armstrong was never listed among the ten best cyclists ever by merits before his titles were stripped away. This from lists made by cycling aficionados.
