Serious question, I'd like to hear your opinions/speculation:
Johan goes and in the process some scores get settled, if only partially.

But what about doping in cycling?
Are significantly fewer riders doping?
Are significantly fewer successful riders doping?

My guess, at least for the successful riders: just prevalent, but much less intense.

I think it is fair to say that there are fewer successful riders doping today than even 3 years ago.....the best "evidence" i can give to support this position would be Ryder's win in the 2012 Giro. Regardless of his past, there has been zero evidence to suggest that Vaughter's teams have not adhered to ethos he established when he founded the team. (Let's try not to let this devolve into a discussion on Vaughter's or Ryder "hypocrisy" or past lives....just looking at how things exist now).

Sure, Froome and Wiggo's performances raised a few eyebrows (rightly so?), but I do think the sport is cleaner now than it has been a in a very long time. Doesn't mean it is "clean" or can't be improved further, but it is "better".

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Oh come on, CK! How can you say that?! Where do you possibly get these ideas? That's just insane? Really?! Are you f#cking kidding me? What have you been smoking? It's preposterous! How irresponsible of you to even post a comment like that! Of all the things to write! Well I never!

Wait.

What was the question?
