|I'm sure Lance Armstrong wishes he could ride away from his troubles|
He continues his commentary: "I am convinced that Armstrong is being unfairly persecuted, and furthermore that every sport that has doping rules should ensure that they are immediately enforceable. If Armstrong outsmarted the USADA, then too bad. My bias is that this agency is doing to its sport what boxing governing bodies did to theirs which is to draw into profound relief its inability to hold the respect and admiration of its chartered participants."
Booker Rising response: Of course, Lance Armstrong was doping out the ying yang. Y'all didn't really think that a guy who had cancer was able to cleanly win all those back-to-back titles? In a sport with such rampant doping activities? Lance Armstrong is giving up his fight with the USADA because they've probably got years of test results to spring on him. Why else would he give up such a prestigious achievement? If sprinter Marion Jones had her five Olympics medals and two world championships medals stripped from her after a USADA sanction, I don't see why Lance Armstrong should get special treatment after allegedly doing the same thing.
