This was bound to get out in public anyway. What strikes me most is that it happens AFTER he retires... Like it was a deal that was signed or something.

Lance isn't like all the other cyclists. He's been caught when retired! Others haven't been that lucky...but it's true, they haven't been considered a half god because they had been able to win the Tour 7 times in a row!

Armstrong denies drug claims

"I will restate what I have said many times: I have never taken performance-enhancing drugs"

Paul Doyle
Tuesday August 23, 2005

Armstrong has hit out at what he calls a "witch hunt".

One month after winning a record seventh Tour de France, cycling legend Lance Armstrong has angrily rejected allegations that he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug, and insisted he is the victim of a "witch hunt."

Despite undergoing regular tests, Armstrong has never before tested positive for a banned substance. And he dismissed today's claims in French newspaper L'Equipe emphatically.

"Yet again, a European newspaper has reported that I have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs," he told his official website. "A French sports daily, is reporting that my 1999 samples were positive. Unfortunately, the witch hunt continues and the article is nothing short of tabloid journalism.

"The paper even admits in its own article that the science in question here is faulty and that I have no way to defend myself. They state, 'there will therefore be no counter-exam nor regulatory prosecutions, in a strict sense, since defendant's rights cannot be respected'.

"I will simply restate what I have said many times: I have never taken performance enhancing drugs."

Armstrong has been dubbed by many as the greatest athlete of all time, after recovering from testicular cancer to win one of the world's toughest endurance races more times than anyone else. Just before announcing his retirement last month, he delivered a message to people who questioned hoiw he achieved such a feat.

"For the people who don't believe in cycling - the cynics, the sceptics - I'm sorry for you," he said. "I'm sorry you can't dream big and I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles."

The only miracle related to Mr Armstrong I wanna strongly believe in is his victory over that cancer that has threatened his life. That fight was a tough one and he's won it with panache. He'll get my everlasting admiration and respect for that. But, denying the truth to that point is a true shame, and reading that l'Equipe is a daily tabloid, well, that's been the joke of the day!

Well he survived the cancer and accusing l'Equipe of being a tabloid is funny.

Reads like the "I'm not guilty statements" of anybody. Armstrong gets hunted his whole career with doping allegations. No surprise, somebody who is so successful in this sport gets automatically questioned because this sport is a branded child.

of course they won't, it's not possible and Armstrong has a loophole in his favour because he was not detected positive within an anti-doping inquiry or investigation, but his samples got anonymously analysed while doing new scientific researches.

I mean Armstrong has more drugs in him than the Bayer factory, and well there was always a cloud over him and now the cloud will become bigger and darker.

LOL. The European press is still desperate to discredit that evil American Armstrong who owned their prestigious tournament for years. To quote Naldo, keep on

I'm sure a lot of American athlets use illegal drugs whic hcan not be found today. Who knows what they develope in their factories. Scary to see all those Americans win at Track and Field.

As to Armstrong. They used a new method which was not able in 1999, just 5 years later to prove he was druged.

I'm just trying to imagine how bad 6-year-old piss must smell.

Nice to see Lance getting some support from Miguel.

France out to get Armstrong for years, says Indurain
Aug 23 12:46 PM US/Eastern

MADRID (Reuters) - Five-times Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain says the accusations of doping made by sports newspaper L'Equipe against Lance Armstrong are part of a campaign designed to discredit the American rider.

"They have been out to get him in France for a number of years," Indurain was quoted as saying on the website todociciclismo.com on Tuesday.

"He's the one who knows about it, but it seems wrong that they are starting to dig over tests from years ago.

"It's all very strange and I don't know to what extent it is legal to keep specimens like this."

L'Equipe, saying it had access to laboratory documents, reported on Tuesday that six of Armstrong's urine samples collected on the 1999 Tour de France showed "indisputable" traces of EPO (erythropoietin).

There were no tests to detect EPO, a drug that increases the level of red blood cells and endurance, in 1999.

However, samples from the 1999 Tour were kept and have been recently retested by the specialist anti-doping laboratory in Chatenay-Malabry outside Paris.

SEVENTH TIME

Armstrong, who won the Tour for the seventh time in succession this year, has denied ever taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Indurain, who won the Tour five times in succession between 1991 and 1995, raised doubts about the testing procedure.

"Anything about Armstrong is news these days, but the question is whether all this is true or not. There are question marks over the reliability of the test (for EPO) and there are a lot of doubts about the whole thing."

Germany's Jan Ullrich, the 1997 Tour de France winner, told German television: "I heard about it, but these are speculations so you can't really say anything about it. It's been six years, and, if it's true, I would of course be disappointed.

"But I can't say anything on it right now. Lance is the greatest of our time and maybe somebody's trying to put him down. I don't know what it's about, so all of this is very speculative."

Swiss Alex Zuelle, who finished second behind Armstrong in the 1999 Tour, told Reuters: "I won't say anything about it because my career as a professional is over.

"I'm not Armstrong. All of this is speculation. Sometimes they have proof, then they haven't ... I'm not interested in it anymore.

"For me, the Tour is over and done with; it's just too many years back."
