In the dustbin of history
There has been a heavy emotional cost to all cycling fans. It is impossible to quantify the time they have defended their heroes in the face of mounting evidence to their crimes.
They have regressed and only hope the honest and clean riders, who have suffered enormously from ill treatment from Lance Armstrong and others, really are the heroes and not the cheats.
In addition to the emotional cost, there is a financial cost too, the fans’ trips to France to watch these cheats in action. All what they are left with as ‘memories’ are beautiful, expensive pictures that cannot go on the wall, not anymore and race kit and helmet they will never want to wear.
They are lucky the team replica bikes were too expensive and hardly one could afford to buy!
I still wonder whether there was some sort of fee for Armstrong to appear on Opra Winfrey show!
Who cares about the cheat Armstrong, his relationship with drugs or any other of his shabby experiences?
He should be consigned to the dustbin of history where he really belongs, along with the other garbage, rather than be given prime time television coverage.
I enjoyed reading the fitting front page banner headline carried by ‘The Vancouver Sun’; “Liar, liar Lance on fire!”
