I think I'm now a former cycling fan
I was an avid cyclist and a club racer rising to Cat 3 and masters before a bad back and age took me out. I know George Hincappie's dad and rode with George and some of the Team Motorola guys once many years ago (my slight now invalidated claim to fame). I followed Armstrong's (and Hincappie as well as all the team Moto/Us Postal/Discovery/Radio Shack) career and cheered his historic wins that never happened. As a fan of the sport, the almost constant drug scandals have taken a toll on my enjoyment of the sport. The latest debacle is my last straw. Why should I invest any time in a sport that will at a moments notice eliminate any and all of it's history. I'm now of the opinion that virtually everyone in the upper levels of the sport cheated, have been cheating for decades and are still cheating now. No need to record a win as it will be removed 2-5-10 years later. I'm not saying that they shouldn't try to clean thing up, but at least for me, one who was a not too typical American cycling fan? Enough's enough. Really sad!!!
, follow them and prosper!
