    Has given in fighting charges and looks like he will be stripped of all 7 titles.

    He has been around cyclist caught previously and is no doubt not the only one in this situation.

    Always had a stench about him to me, all the cancer survivors i know have never come back to 100% of pre-cancer physical ability.

    It is widely known that there are steroids that can be found now that could not be found 10 years ago, thats been going on for decades.

    That is his official statement on it all

    I don't know where I stand on it, mainly because over all the tests over his career, he didn't fail any. As you say, maybe he was on the good stuff that couldn't be traced, but it is still tough to hang a guy who hasn't actually been caught

    To be fair I came back from that same disease (although not nearly as far along) to smash out my highest 3 game series ever (bowling-750) and backed it up pretty well, although as a sport bowling isn't really recognised

    He's had enough tests throughout his life, he isn't even in the sport anymore

    I'd let sleeping dogs lie personally, he has given back to the community with Livestrong

    From memory thats a no Byso, her boyfriend (shotputter?) did and from there they found enough evidence.

    From what i remember about Armstrong he had abnormal levels ie indicators for human growth hormone or something like that in his earlier tests but it wasnt tested for at the time.
