The new improved Lance Armstrong discussion thread.*

You're just taking the mickle. Is that not a banned substance?

Here for rides.
Guilty as charged but currently out on bail awaiting pre-sentencing reports is how I read the current state of affairs.

Added to which

significant, well small but vocal, section of the "cycling public" dissatisfied with HOW the verdict was reached rather than WITH the verdict itself.
significant, smaller but equally vocal, section of the "cycling public" wondering why the focus is on Armstrong (scapegoating?) when he clearly was effectively only the most prominent public symptom of systematic, widespread, institutionalised cheating which was done with the knowledge, and the active collusion, of the so-called cycling regulatory authorities of the time.

Good points Greg. So can we agree to have separate threads as follows:

"USADA and Rider Revelations"
"USADA/UCI/WADA process"
"What's the real big issue?"
"How very dare they!"

Good idea - would it also be of benefit if we moved all these discussions into a Pro-cycling current affairs subsection, to demarcate the races from the politics ?
My principal interest is in the first thread - less opinionated I would hope.

Doc: "Congratulations, It's a boy! What were you injecting yourself with btw ?"
LA: "Doc, I guess I really over did the Human Growth Hormone this time"
Doc: "Lance don't worry, the UCI have no idea how to test for pregnancy yet"

Seperate threads would be potentially useful. Not so keen on a cycling politics sub-section though. I don't see how you can untangle the two.
