The World According to Lance: gripping TV programme

Four Corners TV programme on ABC:

'After winning the Tour de France seven times in a row, Lance Armstrong might well have been the greatest sportsman of all time.
Not only had he won the most coveted of all cycling races, he had done so after recovering from advanced testicular cancer.
Lance Armstrong maintains he has never used performance enhancing drugs.
He claims he has never tested positive in hundreds of drug tests.
Many who know him well now say he is lying.' 


The Paul Kimmage defense fund has now reached $63,378.52 with contributions from 2071 donors. It is great that so many cycle fans have supported Paul and this surely represents an increasing vote of no confidence in McQuaid and Verbruggen and their running of the UCI. But how many pro cyclists, especially those who built their careers on doping, have contributed?
