If they were using the samples from 1999 for research, how and what difference would it make who they belonged to? How did the sports newspaper L'Equipage get the information? If it is a legitimate test and is indeed Lance Armstrong's sample, why isn't the cycling governing body doing something? Do the French know this looks like sour grapes?
I'd have to agree with Lance's statement that seven years of A & B samples that all tested negative is more than enough proof that he didn't dope...at least in the years he won. To his credit, he certainly seems to have alot of support from other cyclists and previous Tour winners.
While anything is possible...maybe we all have been fooled by Lance Armstrong, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
So to the French all I can say is...Give it a rest already!
