Greg LeMond is not surprised

Interesting what LeMond had to say in the news today:

 

LeMond insisted that the riders know very well who dopes and who doesn't, suggesting that "it's obvious there are still dopers in the peloton." He explained that Contador weighs the same as Rasmussen, and both climbed at the same speed as Pantani. "That's sufficient for the red flag to come up." He also reminded us that Contador's name came up in connection with Operaci?n Puerto, but was cleared after the 2006 Tour. "I am not pointing the finger at him [Contador]. I am simply saying if Rasmussen got caught then we also need to have a very close look at his competitors."

 

LeMond suggested the reason riders still dope is that "if you look closely, very few riders get caught, actually," adding that no rider is controlled right before the start of a stage.

Lemond is a joke and should stay out the Tour. He is a has been and like Poison Ivy said,"seems to be throwing very beeeg rocks for a dude living a a glass house"

 

 

 

Just be humble and live life right. So what if they do take Performance enhancements, it not like they are sniffing cocane. And if that was the case...then lets call it Drug abuse in the Tour de France and other tours and kick them off the tour.

 

 

 

E.G. why do they make Performance enhancers, to be one's performance. It's like making a DVD Writer and say that it eligal to Pirate...then don't make the things at all.

 

 

 

The UCI KILLED Marco Pantani by saying that he was using Drugs to Win races and by doing that Band him from racing. Let's not kill our super stars and lets praise them for their hard work and carriage.

But we're making proper hospital drugs and then the subversive f*$&kers are using it to boost the performance of athletes, a side effect. The advice on what to use to boost your performance stems from a source other than the cyclists themselves, get those guys, the riders are trying to earn a living the best way they know how, by winning.
