Wiki has this on doping:
At present there is no accepted method for detecting autologous transfusions (that is, using the athlete’s own red blood cells)
That said, I read one article that said people are suspicious simply because he was able to win in a sport rife with doping... ergo if *everyone* cheats to win then anyone who wins must cheat.
Doesn't take away from his battle with cancer and I don't know that he is any more guilty than his rivals of anything... kinda sad really.
This reminds me of the episode of Family Guy where the Griffins are censored by the FCC in all aspects of their life. They can't even breathe without someone being on their case.
