The Lance Armstrong Fairy Tale may come crashing down just like so many others before him. The truth looks like it is finally coming out and it seems
very familiar - maybe there will be something to learn about the new-fangled logic of "Too Big To Fail". The following article from Sports
Illustrated is a great example of how conspiracies start and can be perpetuated through a combination of skillful use of lawyers and big business.
Anyways, the article linked below is a good read and I'd be interested in hearing what people think - did Lance cheat?
Speaking as an avid cyclist and follower of the sport I wouldnt have believed the allegations had Hincapie not come forward. Landis and Hamilton both
have tarnished names and nothing to really lose by bringing down Armstrong but Hincapie's name is still good as far as I know.
But doping or not I wouldnt ever consider Armstrong one one of the greats. He cheated in his own way by training for the Tour and only the Tour and
riding only the Tour when riders like Merckx and Hinault rode their asses off dominating any races they entered all year long.
Compared to real cyclists like that Armstrong is a limp chump.
