Will the cycling sport ever recover after Armstrong confession or is it too little too late?


After Armstrong confessing to Oprah recently that he was on doping for all of his Tour de France titles - do you think the sport will ever recover? There were even rumours that cycling would be dropped as an Olympic sport if Armstrong confessed. What do you the repercussions will/should be after such a scandal?
