Not about the man, either?

"I know who won those seven Tours, my team-mates know who won those seven Tours, and everyone I competed against knows who won those seven Tours."

Well, millions of admirers do not. Some of them will continue admiring.

"There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say: Enough is enough"

Hard to believe that fighting allegations was that point, not fighting cancer.

Either he drugged or/ and gave up. Either ways, his name takes a beating. Either ways, it is a sad thing to have happened. 

He still is inspiring. 

Tiger Woods lost all his reputation because he was an exceptional sports person - just that. Lance Armstrong stood for way more. And its only his sporting achievements which are tainted. 

It never was about the bike - or what he did with it!
