    I thought this was an interesting insight into the mindset:
    "I've been in this business for a long time," Festina's Alex Zülle told reporters after his arrest last summer. "I know what goes on. Everyone knows. The riders, the team leaders, the organizers, the officials, the journalists. As a rider you feel tied into the system. It's like being on the highway. The law says there's a speed limit of 65, but everyone is driving 70 or faster. Why should I be the one who obeys the limit?"

    Has anyone said the same thing after that scandal, even with more strict testing and all? Which one would you pick?

    1) Indurain, Hinault, Lemond said "I didn't do dope."

    2) Armstrong says "I don't do dope."

    Which one is more credible?

    It's logical to me that all three guys in 1), and everybody racing in the tour at the time, used performance enhancing drugs of some kind.
