This is sad. Cycling without Lance will be pretty boring. This was a witch hunt. He passed tests for years, how many does he have to submit to?
Well NONE< and now he loses his titles, I dont' blame him. Having your fluids repeatedly tested is humiliating and wrong. Lets be clear... he has passed hundreds of tests.

"I am a retired cyclist, yet USADA has lodged charges over 17 years old despite its own 8-year limitation. "

I'm with Lance. That's a witch hunt.

I am greatly saddened by this.

Lance has been a great role model and competitor.

I wish it were not true, but I have to believe that they have the evidence.

If not, I think Armstrong would not have given up the fight.

A sad sad day

I think this should read as an inditement of the governing board. They have damaged their sport in ways Lance nevr never could in his wildest dreams.

I think the 'tour de France' is doing itself more harm in the eyes of the world than Lance is losing in his titles. It may doom the organization for many decades as this sport is now at risk of losing all its credibility as a world sport. Sponsors and countries will drop like flies if the doping allegations are not revealed and exposed if they exist.

I have a feeling their is some country behind the allegation doing this out of spite trying to dishonor the sportsmen who participate. I don't think the world has any doubts about his record and achievements and its a shame he is being maligned out of hate or spite.
