Here's the thing for me. How many doping tests did Lance pass? Lots of them. Lots. And he never failed once. and now everyone is saying how much indisputable evidence there is against him. Really? Where was all this evidence back when it really counted? I like how he's handled all this. He's tired of fighting them and doesn't care what they try to do to his legacy now and is basically giving the middle finger back to cycling, which is awesome! I don't care if he cheated or not, cycling needed him more than he needed cycling. I couldn't name another Tour De France rider, other than Lance and some Floyd guy, and quite frankly, I don't even care to name another Tour rider. Without Lance, cycling is dead to me, just like how the NBA died when Michael Jordan retired.

**** Lance armstrong was the only reason cycling was known as a sport.

And you know what if you cant catch em when their doing it the you cant speculate and make up **** after the fact. 7 World tour titles if they suspected he was doping they should have not let him compete at all... Are they saying its not possible that hes the best of the best at what he does?

This to me would be like trying to take away michael phelps oympic gold medals because he got high after the olympics.

Doping tests are five years late comapred to doping science. Armstrong get caught but negociated with the UCI to hide it. It's in the files.

He get caught when they analyzed him back with his blood but it was too late to act.

Cyclism is dead ? In USA or all over the world ?

There's still races even if Armstrong retired, you know that ?

Maybe you don't pay interest in sports where american people are not the best of the world but some people do.

In fact, if he wasn't american you guys would call him biggest fraud in history.

And he is actually. The fact that he is american is purely anectodical.

At least he used his cheated fame for good... a half of billion dollars for cancer research is quite a bit....
