Armstrong osteopath: no trace of doping

HindustanTimes.com | 'No traces of injections'

Lance Armstrong's osteopath told a doping inquiry he's never seen any sign of injections "or other doping practices" when examining or treating the 6-time Tour de France winner.

Agence France-Presse says Benoit Nave has treated Armstrong since 2002, and testified before the inquiry investigating allegations from the 2004 book "LA Confidential: The Secrets of Lance Armstrong." Separately, Armstrong is suing the book's authors for defamation.

The osteopath told AFP: "I have seen Armstrong undressed because of his sessions with me. I have never seen any trace of doping practices or injections on his body. People are out to get him and I have evidence to counter all that."

I am bitterly dissapointed to hearb that David Duffield will not be anchoring the Tour de France for yet another year.
I have watched the Toue every year since 1999 and have found David Duffield to be the best all round comentator.
Whilst others may try hard to replace him, I for one will miss him grately

Has Duffers written his memoirs? If he hasn't, he surely must.

I too am sorry that David D isn't the anchor but then I believe he is 74. For me he is the TDF from his ramblings from years gone by to what he had for dinner last night. Pure magic and can never be surpassed. I am ashamed to admit I change over to ITV on occasion to find a more knowledgeable commentator (and one I can understand).

this tour was getting a bit boring after the armstrong years.but landis has dragged it back to its best.with Duffers missing and Armstrong retired, Ullrich and Basso also absent, I wasnt really looking forward to the tour but viva Landis.
