Lance Armstrong Interview Part 2
In this day and age there aren't too many professional sports where there isn't some kind of performance enhancing drug use. What it comes down to is who has the best doctors to hide it. Ultimately what do 99.9% of professional atheletes, teams, team owners, etc. want? To be the best of course, and they do whatever it takes to get there. That is what seperates the pros from the joes. What does the public want out of their favorite teams, atheletes, etc to be happy with second place? I'm guessing not. I'm sure there was a lot of American pride from fans when Lance won all those yellow jerseys, did the fans care much about what it took to get him there or was it more important that he was number one? Did all of the sponsors float him fame and money because he was good at coming in tenth place? Trashing the journalists aside, I think Lance did what was necessary to be the best. The fact he was an an icon in the sport just made him a bigger target, but at the end of the day it's no secret that doping was commonplace in the Tour De France, but did that stop people from watching it and wanting their countries, teams, riders to win? Probably not. I think the Olympics would be pretty damn boring without new records being broken every time they were on. And how does that happen? From the athelets drinking milk and eating their "wheaties" I'm sure.

RockShox DIY Contest - And the winner is...
Very cool designs and artwork, but at the end of the day you're still just dressing up a Rock Shox fork. In other words, "you can't polish a turd!"
