The bicycling racing world meant little in this country before Lance and after this will mean even less. AFAIC, they can all take a long ride off a short cliff.
All of the riders who finished second in Tours behind Lance have tested positive, been banned and/or been on teams that withdrew from the Tour because of doping (Astana & Festina).
BTW, watched some pro cycling yesterday, more today.

If he Was cheating, why would he show ANYONE, much less "all of the people claiming to have seen him cheat".

This guy beat a Frenchie at his own game, and won the Tour 3 times, and I never heard of any doping scandals about him from the French.

Just the evidence to support your position.

You do realize 4 ex-teammates testified to a Grand Jury about the US Postal teams doping practices don't you (it should also be noted that eye-witness testimony under oath constitutes as evidence). Do you also know that there currently exists no test to prove blood transfusions? Just tests that indicate it? For example Lance's test of the 2009 tour indicate blood doping as his hemoglobin levels actually rose during the race. This is unnatural blood activity and indicates blood transfusions. Are you also aware of the many ex professional riders who also never failed a single drug test but later admitted to doping?

Saying you never failed a test doesn't mean you never doped.

Did your neighbor's cousin's grandma's dog's uncle's brother hear that over the fence? Or was some actual evidence that Armstrong cheated actually presented?

Oh there exists plenty more I'm sure since the USADA has stripped him of his titles... We don't currently know all they know. That's just some of it.

Did any teammates of Lance provide any physical evidence, or was everything hearsay like your neighbor's cousin's grandma's dog's uncle's brother hearing it over the fence?

10 ex-teammates were prepared to testify against him if this went to the next step which was arbitration. That is why I think he gave up. He knew his goose was cooked.

If people testify they saw him cheat that counts as evidence. 10 ex-teammates were prepared to testify to that.
