What does it take to win 7 tours in a row?
Just a massive doping program that appears to be supported by the sports own governing body (UCI).
I drank deep from the LA kool-aid pitcher, but damn, you're a ****ing liar, Lance.
If it sounds too good to be true, more than likely it is.
The latest rumor is that Lance had UCI over a barrel because they missed some pretty big indicators, in testing, that would have gave him early diagnosis of his Testicular Cancer.
After the Festina affair in 1998 (?) I think the UCI just needed a feelgood story and hero. Lance the kid from a broken home, cancer survivor etc.. What they got was a big bully who would cheat and lie at any cost.
This is gonna get a whole lot bigger for Lance.
