Armstrong?

Did I hear something about an accusation that Armstrong used some sort of doping agent?

The doping accuations have been going on since LA's first TdF win. He is, like other professional cyclists, is regularly and quite often tested for these agents. Some tests are regularly scheduled and some are random, but LA has never tested positive for a forbidden agent. Armstrong has never gone out of his way to cozy up to the French press, and there is no doubt of the personal nature of the French dislike for him. That, and the recent increase of anti-American sentiment, is the main impetus of these accusations.
