When I saw another thread "Indurain vs. Armstrong" something came to my mind.
Lance gets all the suspicions of doping, while nobody had talked about Indurain doping. It was before Festina doping scandal, when Indurain's 5 straight tour winning was going on. Some say "Everybody was doing it.", like it was free for all. After the Festina scandal, doping test became much tighter. But still, nobody even raises the question if Indurain was doping. What you think? Was it easier doping before the Festina scandal or after? I would say it's much more likely, Idurain was doping than Lance doing now. I have no number to quote but I'm pretty sure Lance had gone through doping tests many more times more than Indurain. Am I wrong on this?
Festina scandal 1998
By the way, I'd like to keep this thread in a civil way, meaning no flaming or name calling. Only well informed opinion please.
