“The word ‘alleged’ should now be dropped from any description of the way doping permeated and enabled Lance Armstrong’s cycling career.”
“The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s release of its ‘reasoned decision’and staggeringly voluminous supporting documents that resulted in its move to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles and ban him from elite competition for life — charges he opted not to contest — changes all that, and rewrites Armstrong’s sporting epitaph from alleged to proven user of performance-enhancing drugs and techniques.
There is no other logical conclusion. After today, anyone who remains unconvinced simply doesn’t want to know.”
