Well, if you were 'clean' and you heard of people cheating and doping in your sport then you'd outright condemn that behaviour as disusting wouldn't you? That would be a natural response if you devote your life to something and find other people are trying to cheat wouldn't it. Lance doesn't do this though does he? Doping doesn't disgust him does it? Lance even seems to think doping tests aren't in favour of the cyclists, what's all that about then? He's not bothered about Basso for example is he? ..he talks about how he respects him so much.
Lots and lots of cyclists dope, have done for years. Just testing negative is NOT proof of a clean cyclist, look at the cyclists who have never tested positive but have since admitted to doping... even those on Lance's previous teams.
Yes, he's a talented cyclist BUT I wouldn't think for one second he's clean, if you do then I think its likely you'll assume that cycling is pretty much a clean sport. But its not. Its still great but its been drug riddled for decades. I can't see why people want to believe Lance is this Jesus-like figure, he's not. It would be a lovely story yes, but its not hollywood, its a sport packed full of illegal ways which can bring massive performance gains which people have been doing for years. If you'd like to believe Lance is so much better than all these other pros who do cheat massively then I think you'd be following your heart and not your head.
Its also one of those things the layman can't see... if people argued about whether the contender's in Worlds Strongest Man took steroids now and looked at some of the current guys and compared them to those of the 'Geoff Capes era' then its easy to see by their bodies that 'something is going on' ...BUT... with cycling, cos its not 'visually obvious' people don't believe it, they just can't see it I suppose and then some people really must assume that doping in its various forms doesn't give massive advantages? Cmon, if your one of those that don't then wakey-wakey.
