Lance totally sucks balls. Merckx was a better tour rider, im saying he was abetter tour rider because he could dominate early season and then thrash everyone at the tour, after winning the giro. all this without steroids or EPO. He only tested positive in Italy because the italians didn't like a Belgian kicking evryones ass, same in france. Plus every single EPO crackdown has some kind o frelation to Lance: Hamilton, Heras, Ferrari.
i think all except maybe frigo and a hand full of others might have no connections.
bottom line is that lance is a cheater who doesn't deserve any of his yellow jerseys and he is doing the greatest diservice to cycling by even being affiliated to the hobby(not sport).
