David walsh did not believe Lance Armstrong won clean in 1999..he was vilified, ridiculed, harrased, sued by LA...guess what. Walsh was right....after 13 years, Walsh was given the credit he deserved for sticking with the truth when LA was outed by the USADA report.

Readers will be surprised to learn the details of the LA bullying machine

For most who follow any world-class sport, doping and/or steroid has been around for decades - athletes and media specialists/reporters are aware of it and even though, most consider it cheating or playing dirty, it's reality. What's interesting and what may be the "deadly" part is not having an ultimate passion for a particular sport or an ultimate inner drive to compete to be the best but, it's that ultimate risk of doing whatever it takes to be the best and, at everyone's expense. When does being the best include being the best at manipulation, coercion, deception and cruelty? Still love the sport of cycling but not necessarily the way that Lance exposed it to U.S. fans.
