ChrisKH said:Stupid article in The Times this morning [La mort du Tour] which says 'the monument [ie The Tour] was crumbling after ten years of doping scandals which began in 1998 when a team doctor was arrested with EPO and amphetamines.'
I think it began long before that. Stimpson was obviously a user. Even my father in law has said that drugs were around in (top) amateur racing in Luxembourg in the 50's and he was often offered something pre-race to keep him 'in contention'.
