Like we always are... I just need a little assistance from everyone's knowledge of past Tours De France and it riders. I've compiled a list of the top ten GC riders of the TDF from 1996-2006. There may be some errors, please excuse them, and correct me if I'm wrong. But I want to turn it into 2 lists: one of riders who have been caught or admitted to doping and one otherwise. Here's the 55 names:
Bjarne Riis
Jan Ullrich
Richard Virenque
Laurent Dufaux
Peter Luttenberger
Luc Leblanc
Piotr Ugrumov
Fernando Escartin
Abraham Olano
Tony Rominger
Marco Pantani
Francesco Casagrande
Jose-Maria Jimenez
Roberto Conti
Bobby Julich
christophe Rinero
Michael Boogerd
Jean-Cyril Robin
Roland Meier
Daniele Nardello
Grande Di Guiseppe
Axel Merckx
Lance Armstrong
Alex Zulle
Angel Casero
Vladimir Belli
Andrea Peron
Joseba Beloki
Christophe Moreau
Roberto Heras
Santiago Botero
Francisco mancebo
Andrei Kivilev
Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano
Francois Simon
oscar Sevilla
Marcos Serrano
Raimondas Rumsas
Jose Azevedo
Levi Leipheimer
Carlos Sastre
Alexandre Vinokourov
tyler Hamilton
Haimar Zubeldia
Iban Mayo
Ivan Basso
Andreas Kloden
Georg Totschnig
Oscar Pereiro
Mickail Rasmussen
Cadel Evans
Floyd Landis
Denis Menchov
Cyril Dessel
Michael Rogers
Of these 55, the 10 I know have been found guilty or have admitted to cheating are: Bjarne Riis, Jan Ullrich, Richard Virenque, Marco Pantani, Roberto Heras, Francisco Mancebo, Alexandre Vinokourov, Tyler Hamilton, Ivan Basso, and Floyd Landis. I know there's more to add here so help me out. Thanks.

Nothing.
I knew there were a lot of cheaters out there doing a lot of different junk, but for me this is the last straw. Goodbye cycling!:(

And according to Trev's link, the only Armstrong implicated was Chris for cannibus.

The wikipedia link only lists people who were sanctioned or admitted they doped. Since Armstrong was found to have doped after he retired and only the B samples were tested, he was never sanctioned.

Yeah, the Kivilev comment was in bad taste.

I heard that Armstrong stopped doping because the drugs weren't strong enough...

Or was that Keith Richards..??

That Wikipedia list is interesting. I thought Cycling was bad, but mama mia, Athletics takes the cake.

Realistic hope of stamping out doping in sport = zero, I think that's clear enough.
