I'm getting tired of this... "Yeah, I doped. But it was before the eight year statute of limitations and definitely not during the biggest win of my career".
Professional cycling has to hit the reset button. There needs to be immunity for dopers who voluntarily confess and give useful, detailed information about systems, suppliers, evasion measures, and anything relative to cleaning up the sport. These riders must be given a window of opportunity to come clean and provide the information, but once the window has closed...no more deals. If you are caught doping once, you're out...for good! It's the only way.
