LA counterfeit championships brought shame to all American cyclist that have and will compete in the most noble of all sporting events in the world. His Trek sponsorship was just as corrupt. They were repeatedly alerted by several sources years ago including Greg LeMond. They rebuked and fired Greg for speaking up - even threatening to sue him if he went to the media. Officials knew of LA's juice as did a host of others in the cycling community. Portraying the victim personae as a cancer survivor, he had the best steroids and concealment available. LA's impassioned contributions to cancer research are merits completely irrelevant to his counterfeit sporting stature. I cannot forgive Barry Bonds for stealing the noble Hank Aaron's title anymore than LA for basking in the light of fame at the expense of all the clean careers he decimated. Careers whose earnings were cheated by a self centered druggie.
