On Armstrong's Latest Kerfuffle

Thanks to Ross who sends me this link to a report about Armstrong's latest problem with anti-doping officials (http://sport.france2.fr/stade2/, then click on "Armstrong au coeur d'une nouvelle affaire").

What interests me in this report is that they note Armstrong has been tested 24 times out of competition this year. Journalists interview other professional cyclist and ask them how often they have been tested: "Three times;" "None outside of competition;" "Three or four." It is clear to me that during the EPO era, Armstrong was, well... with his time. But testing a guy on average once a week? At his home, in restaurants, at a hotel... It makes me almost hope that the guys who are on the juice will get away with it and stick it to The Man.
