AND so it came to pass that Lance Armstrong became a victim. The man stripped of his seven Tour de France titles – who denied others glory as he grew rich and allegedly attempted to destroy a woman’s life – is now the victim:

He shares with Cyclingnews.com his thoughts on the French Senate releasing a list of riders who tested positive for banned EPO during the 1998 race, in which Armstong took no part:

“If we don’t come together, have the conversation and draw a line in the sand and then move on, we’re all screwed…My initial reaction is that I am not surprised. As I have said, it was an unfortunate era for all of us and virtually all of us broke the rules, and lied about it.”

So. Ban all the cheats. Make them pay back their winnings and earnings. And give the gongs to the ones who didn’t cheat – if you want to make drugs a no-go, make the punishment severe. Or else, just let everyone use what they want and live with the consequences…
