Abstract

Professional cycling has always been characterized by the culture of doping. By contrast, the outside view on this behavior has changed. Originally, it was rather tolerant and then became progressively critical. Moreover, after a long period of low media coverage, the Festina affair brought durably the issue to the forefront. In this context of great tension between professional uses of cyclists and the social requirement of a clean sport, cyclists have decided to speak out. This article addresses their difference of personal positioning even though they all agree that doping is widespread in cycling.
