Australia is waking up to the fact there's a doping epidemic across all sports and not just cycling:

How long before the rest of the world realises too? The revelations are being kept secret in Operacion Puerto for now, that would make people realise cycling is just a scape goat for other sports, but surely it's only a matter of time?

I read a brilliant, albeit American focused piece this week this week and we need to stop talking about cycling's doping problem and talk about sport's doping problem:

It's frightening how many people think that cycling is the rotten egg in the basket and never think twice about Rio Ferdinand's shopping trips, Christine Ohuruogu's 'forgetfulness' or Rafael Nadal's shoulders...

We're the only sport wanting to get our house in order, that's all.

Definitely - there are plenty of sports with looser doping controls and far more to gain than cycling!
