The Lance Saga: A Little Perspective

Just to give a little context to the furore surrounding the latest installment in the Armstrong chronicles: yes it appears that there is now little doubt that Lance Armstrong engaged in blood doping. But, even if he did dope, he still managed to win the Tour de France seven times against a load of other guys who also doped (see the infographic above for details). Which is still an impressive feat.

(El T is no Lance fanboy, by the way. Just for the record).

The infographic above is a little out of date; Contador was of course subsequently stripped of his 2010 T de F title, and Frank Schleck has been caught with a banned diuretic in his blood just weeks ago.
