You can draw a line in the sand across which we have the testimony of George Hincapie on one side and all that which came before hand on the other. Greg Lemond, Betsy and Frankie Andreu, David Walsh, Emma O’Reilly, Filippo Simeoni, all were attacked on the basis of character. It was said they are liars. It was said they are in it for the money. It was said they were simply jealous.
George Hincapie’s character is above reproach in this instance. He has not denied doping at length in the past. He has not been through a disastrous arbitration proceedings regarding doping accusations. He is not writing a book. There is no money interest at issue. Therefore his testimony cannot be likewise impugned.
George Hincapie, one of Lance Armstrong’s closest friends during their time together at the U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel teams and the only member of all seven of Armstrong’s Tour de France-winning squads, testified before a federal grand jury that he and Armstrong had supplied one another with EPO and testosterone, CBS News reported Friday afternoon.
It will be interesting to see how Lance Armstrong positions himself in regards to these latest allegations next week.
