    Lance Armstrong was ringleader of biggest doping conspiracy in sporting history

    The revelations came in a 202-page indictment by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which charged Armstrong in early October of six offenses regarding the use of banned substances, drug trafficking, administering drugs to teammates and aiding and abetting a monstrous cover-up between 1998 and 2005 - a period when he dominated the globally famous race.

    The findings have had a dramatic impact not just on his millions of fans but on the cycling world itself. Dave Brailsford, British Cycling's performance director and who was key to Bradley Wiggins becoming the first Briton to win the race this year, said he was stunned to read the USADA findings.

    "It is shocking, it's jaw dropping and it is very unpleasant," Brailsford.

    'Massive and long-running scheme'

    "The USPS Team doping conspiracy was professionally designed to groom and pressure athletes to use dangerous drugs to evade detection and to ensure its secrecy and ultimately gain an unfair competitive advantage through superior doping practices," said the agency's report. "A program -organized by individuals who thought they were above the rules and who still play a major and active role in sport today."

    CONTINUE . . .

    How can this be? Everyone knows there are no vast conspiracies. Well, except for the vast "left wing conspiracy" that is.

    Lance Armstrong named in massive 12-year doping conspiracy

    (NaturalNews) Former professional road racing cyclist and Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong is the target of a new investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which alleges Armstrong engaged in a "long running doping conspiracy" between 1998 and 2007. Armstrong has already been barred from competing in upcoming Ironman triathlons as a result of the accusations, and if found to be guilty of the charges, he could also lose all seven of his Tour de France titles.

    The Washington Post (WP) reports that a 15-page letter issued by USADA accuses Armstrong of taking performance-boosting drugs such as erythropoietin (EPO), getting blood transfusions, and supplementing with human growth hormone (HGH) during his glory years -- and the group says it has convincing proof to back its claims. The letter also accuses Armstrong of distributing and administering performance-enhancing drugs to other cyclists between 1998 and 2005.

    CONTINUE . . .

    12 years. That's a long time for something that cannot exist to go on. Do these looney conspiracy theorists accusing Lance Armstrong of cheating have no honor?
    They must just be jealous of all his records. Yeah that must be it they're just jealous and want to bring the poor guy down. Shameful isn't it?

    With all the "stuff" going on in this world today, they may not be under every rock, just every other one of them. Wonder what rock will be turned over next?

    Accusing others of wearing tin foil hats is a good way to stop turning over those rocks.

    Yes, there are some true tin foil hat wearers. Just thought I'd say that before someone sends me a roll of foil. :flower:
