I believe in redemtpion and rehabilitation. This needs to come after a period of time in which you are excluded. This is currently 2 years but I agree with David Millar himself on this….
He argues for a 4 year ban, reduced to the current 2 years if you disclose the coaches and support staff who assisted you in doping. These individuals, if proved, will then receive a life ban.
As well as punishing the athletes this will actually do something proactive to eradicate drugs in sport. A lot of the time the knowledge and ability to dope doesn’t come from an impressionable teenage/young 20s athlete and this needs to be addressed.
