Lance Armstrong vs. USADA

Plus, how can they say whether or not a cover up was involved if they don't have proof of his supposed doping?

No one knows and to be honest we probably won't. Never will lance admit something like that, not even on his death bed, it'd ruin a legacy he's built.
The USADA is always going to say he's a doper, some say it's a move to block him from entering politics. Which is plausible.

They had him, he was competing, they had every opportunity to test him in any way, shape or form they wanted to. They did, he came back clean...
Now, many years later, they are going to keep going after him?
Defending yourself, even against bogus charges, sucks your precious life, precious resources and hard-earned money from your pocket. He's done with the competitive racing, who gives a fuck what they say about him.
He was there, he submitted every test and they tested it in every conceivable way.
What is happening here, is a bunch of attention-whoring bureaucrats, who know that attacking Lance Armstrong puts THEM in the spotlight. They don't get the kind of response from going after other cyclists, so in order to stay "relevant", they go after this big kahuna.
It comes a time in a man's life, when it's time to move on to bigger and brighter things. As I've said many times to people after I've thrown in the towel and walked away - "Do what you gotta do yo.... just do what you gotta do...."

Regardless it shouldn't have taken this to do something about it. USADA was out of their jurisdiction and had no right to press these charges even the uci confirms that.
