Nonsense from Roger Hammond

Hammond recently told Times reporter Brendan Gallagher that “If Armstrong could win the Tour in this day and age it would clarify that he won his Tours clean.” He must be joking. Armstrong beat a doped peloton for seven years and I do not doubt that he could be a serious contender, or even win, a clean Tour. But so what. How does winning clean in 2009 prove that Armstrong was clean in 1999-2006?

There is a mass of evidence that Armstrong doped and against that is the fact that he never failed a dope test. Just like Marion Jones or Ivan Basso or Ivan Basso’s dog or Johan Museeuw or Eric Zabel or Aldag or Bjarne Riis and hundreds of others who never failed a test but we now know were dopers. Get real Roger, whatever happens in 2009 will have no bearing on the dark days of the first Armstrong era.

That nasty crash in Gent-Wevelgem must have shook Roger’s brain.

    IT IS TRUE THAT ARMSTRONG WAS ALOWED TO TAKE A COCKTAIL OF 5 CANCER RECOVERY DRUGS, THAT ARE ALSO ON TEH UCI BANNED LIST, OF THEM EPO BEING ONE OF THEM , AND HE WAS ALOWED TO CARRY ON TAKING IT AFTER HIS SURVIVAL OF CANCER FOR SOME TIME, IN ORDER THAT THE CANCER DOES NOT COME BACK. THAT IS WHY HE TRAINED ON AN INDOOR TRAINER WHILST GOING THROUGH CHEMOTHERAPY. YOU DONT IMPROVE PERFORMANCE BY THAT MUCH JUST FROM LOOSING SOME WEIGHT.
