What an idiotic thing to do. Just a silly personal vendetta imho...

Even *if* he did take anything illegal - and the only evidence is hearsay from convicted cheats - i'm sure the other guys in the race were on the same stuff.

Can the USADA strip him of titles awarded by the Tour de France?

Notwithstanding the fact that accusations against Armstrong are pretty stupid, your post is an insult towards Vas. Also it was absolutely off topic.
Garbage post all the way.

[MODERATION]
If the purpose of this thread is to discuss cheating cases in general, EO is a more appropriate subforum, but that is a big stretch. If the purpose is to discuss cheating in cyclism, then CTF is the place. That is your choice, you can repost.

We generally tolerate some off-topic comments, as long as they do not grow too much and drown the forum. However, this post is like poking a wasp hive. We already have complaints abut this post and the membership repeatedly sent us messages that they do not want to see here in the main forum what this type of posts could lead to.
