Biggest drug cheat in the history of sport or greatest cyclist ever?

No court case, never failed a drug test.

Just like the last bloke, everyone said he cheated at the time but because he came back from cancer it wasn't PC to criticise - it's all those poor sods who came second I feel sorry for.

I remember Boardman commentating on the Tour where Pantani won the Ventoux stage. The clear implication was that he was juicing and that was long before Armstrong's super human performances. I used to be seriously into road cycling. Believe me, there's no other sport where the gap between amateur and pro is so obvious.

It smells a little fishy. If all these people testified that they knew he did this adn did it with him than why is he the only one being banned besides the doctor. I say it is a crock ! Apparently nobody actually believes that someone could be that good without drugs. I guess the drug tests he passed meant nothing. Personally i think it is a set up.
