Which bit ? All of it. All of the others were caught and banned when they were riding. The drug laws in cycling are the same as other sports - get caught and you're banned for 2 years. Caught again - a longer ban. All of those were banned. Contador managed to receive a lesser ban through a technicallity. There is no evidence of any of them getting up to the tricks Armstrong did. To claim that Armstong is some kind of sacrifice is bollocks.
He threatened and sued sponsors, riders, reporters and other people involved in racing throughout his career. He dragged many people into the sewer with him. The sooner he's destitute the better. At least make an attempt to familarise yourself with the facts. Wikipedia has plenty of pages devoted to Armstrong.
Oh good grief, you really have swallowed the whole thing hook line and sinker, haven't you? Lance is the Devil incarnate, all the others were just poor weak deluded children that he personally bullied and abused and forced into cheating. Don't you find all those former teammates who only now tell the truth, just a little unconvincing? They were all in it together and they are all as guilty as sin. It is just very handy for the rest to put it all onto Lance.,
Cyclists were routinely doping when Lance was in short pants. Tommy Simpson died on Mt Ventoux from using too many amphetamines. If you believe that Indurain was so dominant for so long (just like Lance) just because he trained harder, you are very naive. Lots of leading cyclists cheated, and some were caught and banned. I find the sanctimonious David Millar, a proven and banned drug cheat now pontificating about how evil Lance was, just a sickening hypocrite. He would still be cheating if he hadn't been caught.
Cycling needed to clean up its act, and by making an example of the biggest name in cycling, it enabled the rest to put their houses in order (hopefully) under cover of all the noise and fuss about Lance.
Anyway, back to the thread about doping in F1. Or not.
