Smugness and arrogance won't get you everything.

As a human being, it's great that he beat cancer, I wouldn't wish that hardship on anyone.

As an athlete and role model....pathetic.

From what I read, it was more that he gave up fighting. He's passed 500+ drug tests, and the whole thing was a witch hunt. I don't see it as an admission of guilt but rather someone who is tired of fighting to prove himself. Can't blame him there.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Irrelevant, since he's not charged with using drugs, unless you consider human blood a drug.

He's being charged with cheating, without any proof by an organization that has a bad history. He's not saying he's guilty, he's saying he doesn't recognize the USADA has having the right to target him. Notice that NO other agencies are involved? Not the Tour de France officials, not any other agency. That should say an awful lot.
