Stop riding Armstrong

Dear Editor:

I was very disappointed to read that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has decided to reopen its allegations against Lance Armstrong in its doping probe. I have no idea whether the allegations are true or not, and frankly I don’t care.

I think, like most here in Aspen and perhaps most around the world, this is old news and nobody really cares. This is a man who has been a pillar of our community and has done selfless work to raise money and awareness for the prevention of cancer. We all have benefited from his undying commitment to this cause, and it would be a shame to do anything to jeopardize his efforts.

His professional biking days are pretty much over anyway, and there should be no asterisk next to his phenomenal accomplishments. I understand he wants to become more involved in triathlons, and I believe his commitment will be a big positive to that sport.

I hope everyone will join me in supporting him and in helping to fight these allegations.
