Just like The Police song state, 'Truth Hits Everybody...'. Excellent article Neil. I've been listening to your comments also on The Spokesmen podcast, & I completely agree. The sport of cycling really needs to be cleaned up.

Keep up the great work.

Judged by hearsay; the quality of journalism is as suspect as the rules of evidence Armstrong faced.

No evidence from hundreds of tests seems to mean he must be guilty. Witnesses who admit guilt and are offered inducements to condemn him are the innocent.

There are too many breeches of natural justice for me to feel this is a satisfying conviction.

It was a witch hunt. Stepping aside proves nothing. Tygart should be fired.
