Sorry, I do not belong to the community "Why do you care, they are all cheating anyway". What gets me upset are , in no particular order:
- The fact that some good athletes, especially French ones, who would have truly deserved winning the Tour de France but could not due to this organized cheating.
- The fact that Armstrong so arrogantly bragged about his pseudo-victories, despising the French journalist, and the rest of the racers. Indurain was probably as charged as him, but at least he shut the f*** up.
- The fact that he was a model and a hope for a lot of people with cancer and simply betrayed their trust by acting like a jerk.
- The fact that people have wasted time and energy to save him from cancer, and all he did after that was endangering his life again despite the chance that had been given him.

You'd be happy to learn that my world is wider than only my wife or even my family. I care about what happens in the world, and this particular case, no matter how insignificant it should be for you, drives me mad.
