Oscar knows it just as easily could have been him who was unlucky..

[QUOTE=El Diablo Rojo]Oscar's quote was very telling...

Yeah, the long and short of it is that ALL cyclists in the TDF are dopers.
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows anything about pro cycling. Lance doped. Anquetil did too (and admitted it publicly). And everyone in between.
Landis is dirty (even if he weasles out of it on a technicality) --and his story about drinking 4 shoots of JD before his comeback stage is laughable -though it is sad to see posters and espn "cycling experts" take it seriously, and actually defend it as credible...
Perico Delgado doped. And yes, even mr. clean himself, Greg Lemond doped.
I still love cycling, love watching races, though I'd prefer it if the sport cleaned up.

But I know its not going to happen, especially considering how deluded/gullible people are about the whole affair (I mean some people think that because Lance armstrong never got caught it means that he was clean, lol. That's like thinking that not getting caught in a lie is equivalent to telling the truth...)

Lets get real here guys.
