LA is the most tested athlete in the history of sport. He's either squeaky clean or he's so lucky that he should win the lottery every day even though it's only run once a week!!!

I believe the former to be true.  :smug:

Sure he takes drugs, testosterone especially, but so would you if you'd had your bollocks removed!!

Paul Kimmage comes across in his book as a second rate cyclist who believes he is so much better than he actually is and says that everyone else is cheating to make up for his own inadequacies.
This isn't just a thousand to one shot. This is a professional blood sport. It can happen to you. And it can happen again.

He isn't even the most tested cyclist, let alone the most tested athlete in history. Tie that up with payments to the UCI and conflicts of interest with the USADA and have a think about what might happen to any positive results. Armstrong has already collected a TUE after testing positive, EPO in his 1999 TdF B-samples (good enough for his EPO doping schedule to be determined), plenty of teammates and support staff reporting his using PEDs.

Just had a little tot up. Looking at LA's last Tour win in 05, out of the 19 people behind him in the final GC, half of them were later busted for doping offences (or similar eg Rasmussen). Half of them!

I think it is safe to assume that their failed tests were not the result of a one-off attempt at doping, and therefore they had successfully eluded other tests. Perhaps it is safe to assume that the other half of the 05 GC includes some who remained lucky.
