    WHY was the thread about LA blood tests deleted?

    Why was the thread linking this legitimate article http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/...levels-debated from cyclingnews.com deleted?

    Is BF on the payroll of Armstrong?

    Maybe it violated copyright laws. A link was all that was needed, not a total reprint of the article.

    Linkee no workee. (The bike forum thread)

    Armstrong doesn't help homself with his own arrogance: " “How do I say "ssdd"[same ****, different day - Ed] in Danish?” he wrote last Thursday."

    I think it's rather absurd to think you could read anything like that from data Armstrong published himself voluntarily.
    I don't like him and I believe he doped and still dopes, but there's just no way he'd make a stupid mistake like that.

    well i think LA is awesome and support him, but i still agree with you. those were on his Livestrong site, he wouldnt have posted the correct ones if he was doping, which i dont believe he does. BUT you never know, i cant defend him whole heartedly because im not with him 24 hours a day to see if he does, but i do say that being the most tested rider in the TDF...for a long time now, and not having been caught, would lead me to my belief that he isnt doping.
    they clearly said they are not normal, but nothing that could prove he was doping, Delucas numbers were actually much better after the Giro, so for them to stay the same is strange but not proof he is doping.
    as for why it was deleted, idk, great article to read though, thanks for the repost.

    Ok, there is a problem with the original post so the link doesn't work.
    As an admin I was able to pull up the thread but was unaware that y'all couldn't.
    Sorry bout that.

    I copied all of the posts (could not copy original post) I could so the thread reads alright.
    Let me know if y'all have any problem with it.
