^ok, I stand corrected...
But Guy is in the Nile. Sad really. Even LA isn't there...

Everyone has their heroes. Your hero is a back-stabbing rat. Mine isn't.
Oh, and Armstrong has raised more than $500 million in his cancer survivor foundation Livestrong. What are the accomplishments of his detractors other than writing tell-all books?
The motivation of Armstrong's detractors are clear ... if they were going to be stripped of their titles, they'd bring down Armstrong as 'misery loves company.' Just a bunch of rats and they don't deserve respect or credibility.
Come on Guy, you haven't even read the evidence, have you? You are floundering around in a hope that we will believe your bleating about an athlete who has, by his recent actions, actually admitted that he is not the 7 times Tour winner. Come on Guy, fess up, you haven't read ANY of the evidence, have you?
I think that the sport is cleaner nowadays, I hope Wiggins is clean, but it isn't totally clean. There are still doctors working on beating the system, there are still athletes juicing, all we need now is better policing. The UCI are appalling, WADA are appalling and the USADA is just a joke. They would rather go on a crusade than actually test athletes with any intelligent thought as to how athletes are likely to be juicing.
Poacher and gamekeeper scenario is a good analogy here, there are poachers who want to turn gamekeeper but the authorities don't want to work with them - why not? Self-interest? Incompetence? Something more sinister? I don't know, but I do know one thing, LA is guilty.
No-one, the Tour de France director has asked the UCI to not allocate those seven titles which there will be no winners for those editions
Guy, you seem upset at the 'rabid pursuit of LA', but do you now agree that he doped? Have you read the evidence against him? I would say to you claims of rabid pursuit that you are equally rabid in your denials, in the face of a mountain of evidence, that he doped. Can you at least accept that he was doping throughout his career? What you do with that knowledge is not the issue here, I happen to believe (and I have said a few times on this thread) that he was the best athlete of his generation, dope or no dope, so I will continue to view him in that light. However, there are some folks who want their money back because he cheated, it is all about the millions that he got for winning, some folks are awful upset about that. You can call him the (doped) champion if you wish, but he actually took millions of $$$ that other riders didn't get, he should give the cash back.
2.250 millions just on the Tour the France
