The root of my feeling lies in the fact that doping is not a one race thing. To me, it’s preposterous to think, and as far as I can tell, physically impossible for a rider to stop doping and continue to masquerade as a clean athlete. Doping is a tattoo, permanent. Even if for a short period of time, the muscles built, the cardiovascular system developed, the knowledge gained at the top of the sport will always be with these riders till the day they die. The phrase “former doper” is a joke. Once a doper, always a doper.
