The wallpaper on my computer, prior to a recent crash, was a photo from the 2005 TdF taken by Graham Watson. Very scenic, with Armstrong leading the peloton past a field of sunflowers. Right behind Armstrong was a veritable who's who of disgraced riders: Basso, Ulrich, Rasmussen, Vinokourov, etc. Yes, maybe a clean rider could beat cheaters, but...

As far as the TdF organizers, I think they looked the other way in 1999 (and not just for Armstrong) to try to build the race back up after the 1998 Festina debacle. What better way than a feel good story that also opened up the race even more to the major US market. After that, I think they wanted to try to reign in Armstrong but were in a bind to keep the interest up and not look bad in retrospect.

Hmmm...interesting how he says none of his teammates were implicated in doping. He might be correct in that they were never positive while on his Tour team, but a few have been linked with doping:

Manuel Beltran - tested positive for EPO in 2008
Tyler Hamilton - caught blood doping in 2006
Roberto Heras - positive for EPO in 2005
Floyd Landis - high testosterone/epitestosterone ratio in 2006
Frankie Andreu - has admitted to taking EPO while on teams with Lance

I highly doubt Armstrong was clean. However, to call him an embarrassment to the Tour and especially the French race is so insane that Amaury should, at the very least, have to give a public apology. Who is he to speak for the entire French population. Not to mention cycling was well on its way to being where it is today, Armstrong or not.

It could be accept by individuals so effortlessly. I assume lots of people will agree with you. You happen to be proper that we are able to to not rely on other people. Who we are able to to count on is ourself.
