But leader after leader is not the fact (if you mean the Tour de France). The only ones at the top that were caught in the last few years were Landis and Vinokourov (and further down memory lane Pantani). There are a lot of insinuations and suspision about others like Rasmussen, Ullrich (?), Armstrong, Lemond, Virenque (?), but nothing on proof with tests if I recall correctly. Some just got booted or blamed by the press and cycle organisations to make a stand, at the looks of it.
They're idiots if they use, indeed. But keep in mind the tour starts with close to 200 people and by far the most are doing this in a clean way. It is not overall corrupted as people think. I think...
