A guy that I know races on a pro continental team and yesterday we were talking about cycling in general; the conversation turned to doping and he said that pretty much everyone in the pro peleton is dirty. He was saying for someone like Tyler Hamilton doping was the difference between making $60-70k on Postal as a domestique and making $500k+ as the leader of a team. He also said that in Europe its accepted that guys dope and the Americans are the only ones making a really big deal about. It was interesting to hear the perspective of someone who makes their living racing.
