The problem here is you have no reason not to trust them other than personal prejudice based on being let down by an American.
There is more than enough information, transparency and data out there to enable you to let the personal hangups go and to enjoy the sport again. You just don't want to.
There's a whole generation of people who were foolish enough to be taken in once and who are now being overly protective of their emotions. That does not make them right.
I think you're being a bit narrow minded to think its just one American that leaves the fans feeling pessimistic, isn't this just a normal human reaction?...the late 80's onwards have been a disappointment with regard to what we know now with EPO, from Indurain, Bugno, Chiappuci...PDM in the 90's to Riis, Ullrich, Pantani...Festina, T Mobile...etc etc etc
I for one hope Wiggins and Froome are clean but won't feel comfortable for several years to come...
