Everybody doped in Armstrong era: WADASYDNEY - World Anti-Doping Agency chief John Fahey said Tuesday that “everybody doped” in cycling during the Lance Armstrong era and the sport’s administrators at the time should take some responsibility.
The U.S. rider’s epic fall concluded Monday with the loss of seven Tour de France titles, leaving the sport grasping for a way to move past a drug-tainted past.
The International Cycling Union supported the findings of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (U.S. ADA), which branded Armstrong the central figure in a sophisticated, systematic doping scheme.
Fahey said those in charge at the time must bear some responsibility. “There was a period of time in which the culture of cycling was that everybody doped. There is no doubt about that. The administrators have to take some responsibility for that.”
