Right there in the exert - "Hendershot rationalized the lie by saying the doping process was overseen by Max Testa, an Italian doctor who is still working in the sport and running a sports medicine clinic in Utah. In 2006, Testa told me that he gave his riders the instructions to use EPO but never administered drugs to those riders. "

I'm guessing what djconnell wrote wasn't the exact quote that was in the exert. The one I put was a copy and paste directly from the article - not paraphrased.

One can only hope that cycling's Truth and Reconciliation commission uncovers the full extent of cycling pharmacology so that we can remove these influences from the sport.

It won't and you will never get rid of doping in sports
Friends don't let friends ride clinchers
