    BEAR!!! We are not talking about Ritalin and Viagra again? It'll help you concentrate on what you have in front of you. And if you skip your anti-seizure meds.... wow what a one man party you could have. :party2:

    Here's my take, if EVERYONE was doping, and Lance came out on top, then he was the superior athlete! This means that his baseline would have been better to begin with or he trained that much harder. I don't really care that much at this point either.

    Personally I would be MORE surprised to find a professional athlete that wasn't doping. The pressure to be the "best" can often be enough to compromise anyone's integrity. I also stopped idolizing athletes and "celebrities" for what they do on the field or on camera/stage, but more for what they do when they're not performing. To me this speaks greater to their character and this where I can applaud Lance.

    Peace Out!

    I figure if I claim to be on performance enhancing drugs and still arent doing well, I can blame the drugs.

    BEAR may have appreciated if all the drug advertising SPAM wasn't deleted.

    You do realize that this video kind of contradicts the point you made in your first post. Lance decided that it wasnt worth risking bankruptcy in order to keep his titles. He has a lot of money but is retired and isnt making anymore through cycling. After over a decade of being harassed about unproven drug use he decided enough was enough and he just doesnt care anymore. He would rather have his wealth and live the rest of his life in peace then spend the next several years burning through his retirement fund just to have 7 titles associated with his name. He knows what he accomplished, who cares what anyone else thinks? He's the only person he has to answer to.
