People (and the media) saying he didn't fail a single test over his career are wrong though. It's simply not true.

He did fail a test that should have him banned, but gave a medical prescription after he was tested positive which of course is absolutely not allowed.
UCI let it go though, and why they always chose to close their eyes on LA is a mystery to me.

That said, after reading here for years that LA was chased by "jealous french" (said by LA himself BTW), it's good to see that he was sunk by fellow americans. I've always thought using the xenophobic argument was highly irritating. Especially when you see how Virenque was mocked in the media for YEARS.
