1. Is there or is there not an 8 year statue of limitation on doping? If there is, how can it be dismissed so easily? 2. Many of the riders that will inherit those Tours (or a place in the podium) have themselves been confirmed to be involved in doping. Ullrich has acknowledged being a doper and was part of Operación Puerto. Zülle was in the Festina doping case. Beloki was in Operación Puerto. So was Basso. Klöden was accused of having received illegal blood transfussions at the Freiburg University Clinic. Dufaux, who would get a podium spot, was ejected from the Tour in 1998 with the Festina doping case, and later acknowledged having doped. Same thing with Moreau. Botero was in Operación Puerto. Hamilton also failed some drug tests. Armstrong’s 2 Dauphiné victories would go to Landis and Mayo, both official dopers. His Midi Libre would go to Igor González, also a doper. All of them are here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_doping_cases_in_cycling Is the USADA prepared to go after all these guys with the same zeal and strip them of those titles and podium spots as well? If so, would they then investigate the ones taking their place? How far? What this effectively means is merely a transfer of titles and podium spots from one alleged doper to a bunch of confirmed dopers. What a joke.
