Of course there was temptation and huge temptation. I had a lot personally because I don’t see doping as a moral thing. I don’t see taking drugs as a moral flaw.“That sounds weird but I’ve seen guys who have really good morals do some bad stuff in cycling. And guys that don’t dope do some really bad things in life. So for me it wasn’t a moral thing. If I did it I wasn’t going to be a bad person.
Interesting interview with Creed over on CN. Only wish it were longer! This is pretty much my stance, and, I believe, the only way out of the “moral” morass of doping in cycling.
