    The Velonews article about the French doctor caught my interest.

    Quote. ..................."
    [size=-1]Gaumont shocked the court Tuesday when he said it was the current doctor of the French Cycling Federation (FFC), Armand Megret, who had first injected him with a doping product, in 1994. [/size]

    [size=-1]"It was Armand who injected me with the first ever doping product of my career, in 1994," said Gaumont, who after retiring two years ago went on to write a book detailing the sordid secrets of drug-taking on and off the bike. [/size]

    [size=-1]The presiding judge, Laurent Bougerie, was stunned. [/size]

    [size=-1]"The same Armand Megret who is working as the official federation doctor, and who helped introduce the long-term health supervision program for riders?" the judge asked. [/size]"

    I think cycling is the cleanest sport we have. Articles like this make us all proud to be involved with the sport.

    I read all the way through your post with such anticipation because I thought, right up to the very end, that it was going to be non-Armstrong related.

    It's just not possible, is it?
