The 1996 Tour de France Winner admits to doping.

Doping may even be a bigger problem for cycling as steroids and HGH is for baseball. But, at least Bjarne Riis is man enough to admit the error of his ways. He told the press he will give his shirt back if they want it. The tour has weighed in and they want the yellow jersey back. I think sports could go a long way by giving amnesty to players and sports figures alike to come forward and tell their story. It is silly to prosecute and attack these people when on some level we are all complicit. At least in the baseball arena.
