I’m sat at home, pondering recent events in the cycling world. At the age of 52, I’ve seen many drugs scandals over the years. This latest one is the biggest, and worst, by far. The accused is one of my all time heroes, a man who beat the odds of cancer, when given 35% chance of survival. Returning from illness to win seven Tours, Lance went on to build Livestrong, a charity that has raised over $500 million to help other cancer sufferers.
