What if Floyd and Tyler got together to write a tell-all book about the widespread prevalence of doping in cycling?
What could they say?
Could they recommend a solution?
Would this help or hurt cycling? In the long-run?
Should they get help from ... LeMond? Daniel Coyle? Anonymous cyclists? Basso? Ullrich?
Is this a good idea?
Would you buy such a book?

They should write a tell-all book, with Armstrong giving the foreward about how Dr Ferrari helped him dope and get away with it. It'd be nice to know about various Armstrong/Ferrari techniques on drug clearance, masking agents, hematocrit manipulation, etc.

I would *love* to see it. But sadly, it appears that doing so would effectively end whatever carreer they'd hoped to have. I think someone's got to break the chains and expose what's (allegedly) going on.

I also would love to see a book written listing everyone in the pro peloton that dopes.... Armstrong, Basso, Ulrich, etc. etc.

Ratting straight to the public is a bad idea. There's a high sleeze factor to tell-all books and they don't do any good except to the author's wallets. Ratting privately to tptb is ok if they can give info to help in the short term. The only permanent fix for this problem are better tests.

I would maybe borrow it from the library if I was bored.
