Very sad. An extremely talented rider with serious mental health issues that he could only deal with the wrong way.

I like what he is quoted as saying in this article. In essence, "yes I doped, but so did everyone else in that race." No **** Sherlock. Just wish everyone had the guts to come to terms with this. Pro riders dope. Period.
