The powder was in the back pocket of a clean jersey. The soigneurs always handed the riders a clean jersey at the end of the race to change into. If you get asked to a test dip your finger in the pocket and wee over it, the powder (which used to be biological soap powder!) and the enzymes mask any trace of doping

There is a little bit of me that is afraid to get too excited though. I just have a nagging feeling that, as usually happens in the US, the power of $$$$$$$$ will win through.

Although I do hope he gets fucked left right and centre.....

My guess is that he'll take a refined stance of not taking others down. He's someone who clearly has eyes on a bigger prize (politics probably as already mentioned here) and knows that regardless of what comes out, theres probably more than enough people blinded by his greatness to still make a semblance of this possible (see Huffington post article about Livestrong donation increasing x 25 since allegations came out).

Just out of interest, has he ever stated under oath that he never doped? Or has it always been via statements? Sure it would never happen but I'd love to see that fucker do time for perjury....

Tour de Suisse.

Armstrong is alleged to have tested positive for EPO at the 2001 edition of the race, and the positive was subsequently covered up by the UCI, in collusion with Armstrong.

France2 have today alleged that there are further Armstrong positive tests that were covered up in 2004 and 2005.

This isn't quite true, according to France2, USADA have re-tested samples from 2004 and 2005 and these are positive.

Even his propaganda statements are always carefully worded to avoid direct lies, probably because being caught in an outright lie would be more damaging to his political ambition than finally admitting that he doped.

I"ve always found Michael Ashenden"s view interesting, he has no doubt Armstrong took EPO during the 99 Tour. Ashenden was of course part of the team that developed the test for EPO.

people say Tyler Hamiltons new book is by a convicted doper! ok fine. But for me the interesting thing is Daniel Coyle a New York times best seller, & also author behind the brilliant Talent Code has co written this book. Does anyone really think Dan would ruin his reputation by writing aload of guff. He has tripple checked many of Tylers facts, with various people time & time again.

If the UCI technical commission imposes reversed crank rotation on cycle sport for the 2013 season, we need to look into whether Fat Pat is getting an unfair head start on training thanks to inside information. Here he is furiously back-pedalling:

If they bother to do that, they will be wasting their time. Libel tourists will discover one copy of the unexpurgated version has entered the UK and the courts will let them proceed.
