    The attention in the article is on the Tour, since that is the only bike race most Americans have heard of and where Lance made his name, but do the sanctions also apply to his wins in the Giro, Vuelta, and other races?

    Wait, so didn't he pass tons of tests? I read that, and why doesn't that count for or mean anything? I mean, why have the urine and drug tests if you just say later that despite the clean tests, that you are just going to listen to former teammates and the like who obviously have a vendetta against him? So, I guess this means that they should stop testing right? Because if you are just going to flush (no pun intended) the results anyway, then why waste everyones time? I really don't care about the guy, although I like his foundation, but I hate injustice and this seems like a witch hunt to me. After some research it seems like the vast majority of cyclists were taking, or doing somethings that they shouldn't have. I guess Armstrong is the biggest name in cycling, so he makes the biggest ripples in the pool if they toss him in huh? Disgusting. I'm glad I don't care about cycling.
