Greg needs to get off of this on-going rant about Lance. Greg, you had a great career and made huge stride for US Cycling, you had some very bad luck as well as teammates. You missed a shot at having or holding the record for TDF wins. But, that was then, this is now.

This article implies that Lance won’t be tested by WADA and / or Race Organizers. This is simply not true, he must (is required to) comply with the requirements of the UCI and Race Organizers as well as his home country and world anti-doping agency requirements.

You lived in a day where there wasn’t effective testing. While you may have personally not knowingly taken any performance enhancing drugs, how many times did you get a Vitamin shot from your team doctor. How many times did you have extraordinary days. I would contend that in that day, not only did riders not know, but still might not be aware of what was done to them to achieve wins.

You now simply hurt the sport of cycling with your on-going obsession with Lance and his amazing success.

Please stop!
