What do you guys think of him? Do you think he cheated?

I don't think so... I mean the guy got drug tested more than any other athlete in any sport... if he was doping they'd have found it by now

It's just the era we live in... these days steroid use and doping is so prevalent people just assume that's the answer... So many people forget that before the cancer and his transition to being a full-time pro cyclist, Lance Armstrong was a world-class Triathlete... He's just that damn good. No one accuses Kobe or LeBron, or has accused MJ or using steriods, but cycling is a different world and the UCI runs it like Nazi Germany, lol.

Performance enhancing drugs have run rampant in cycling.

I can't believe that any human completely clean can so thoroughly dominate his peers, who are using PODs. I just don't believe it's possible (looking at you too U. Bolt).

That said; if everyone is breaking the same rule, I don't consider it "cheating." I see a flaw in the rules or enforcement of those rules. I don't like stripping Lance of his wins at all; even though I don't believe for an instant he was clean throughout his career.

Unless they can absolutely prove he did cheat with scientific evidence then I don't think they should have stripped him of his titles. There is clearly an agenda here and they have desperately wanted to nail Lance for YEARS. I think Lance finally said, to hell with this I have nothing more to prove via tests, etc, I won't challenge their decision.

Unfortunately for Lance, the entire world will now label him as a cheater because of them stripping his titles.

Sometimes people cant accept that someone is just that good. Consider Jordan, for example. I doubt he ever used steroids, and yet year after year the dude was just on another level. You couldent beat him, he just would not let you. Even as an old man with the Wizards, he still was a god in the clutch. Same goes with Gretzky. You thought you had them beat, and they would pull some insane shot off and all you could say was "****! Guess we're not beating him tonight".
