The more that is known/prosecuted, the more chance for future doping to be detected/discouraged.  I'd prefer there to be less doping in cycling than is currently the case.
Definitely to the second sentence, but only probably to the first, because it also tells the dopers more precisely what they can and can't do. Still, if they can catch more of the small fry who can't afford the ways and means to outdope the antidopers, hopefully - just hopefully - those caught will go on to be clean in racing.
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

The current investigation is after the biggest dopers of the last decade. Floyd's statement has already pointed out major weaknesses in the current testing regime. Couple that with the potential to clean out corruption in the UCI and real improvements may occur.

Even if they did catch Lance ( and I doubt it ), everyone will just say it was the past, the old guard, and its not like that now. That's why I don't really care.

Check for mysterious slumps in people's performances recently compared to previously. Doping is rife.

So once they've got Lance, when will they come for Eddie and Bernard?  :demon:

Fine, they don't have blood and urine stored but they didn't have EPO anyway.

Different era, different drugs. EPO is the biggie. A bit of speed never gave anyone a 15% advantage day after day

"...looking into charges that there was systematic doping among professional cyclists,..."

Really? Hardly need to have 20/20 vision to look into the blindingly (sic) obvious. Have they nowt better to do?
