Armstrong has done so much for health, charity, cancer patients, etc...who cares about this!
I care. The "doping culture" & cycling have co-existed (unfortunately) forever. LA was tested and tested and tested and except for a dinged corticosteroid in 1999, as far as I am aware, he never failed a drug test. If he had (unless God forbid, the UCI covered it up), then he has passed the standards that were set when he won his titles. Doping was institutionalized within the sport. It's just the reality, not making excuses. I prefer to remember how excited everyone (myself included) was when he successfully came back from cancer and raced. I'm more concerned that cycling NOW stays clean and moves past it's dark era, but staying vigilant to prevent history from repeating itself. Pipe dreams perhaps, but I love the sport.
