Sorry, that includes Lance. I now have as much faith in cycling that I do in
baseball. Merckx was honest, after that it's anybody's guess. The riders are
always one step ahead of the testing labs.

What makes you believe Merckx was clean?

Yeah, remember, Merckx won races consistently from February through
October. If anyone was a candidate, he was. He rode during the
emergence of amphetamines. Powerful stuff.

Other than testing positive at a drug test during the 1969 Giro.

Well, he did (allegedly) test positive for something (ephedrine???) in the
1969 giro.

No claim of 'clean' was made

'Clean' versus 'honest' is very different

Merckx was honest - he honestly tested positive. It's
today's riders that have no respect for tradition. They
don't test positive - that's how you can tell they're dishonest.

Eddie was honest. He was also taking lots of speed.
