That's the attitude all cheats have: everyone else is doing it so I'll have to do it too. It might have taken a long time to come out in the wash but come out it did.
Asterix said that since all the Gaulish drink the magic potion, it doesn't matter who wins and that they just draw lots after the contest.

That's how they should do it in that sport as well. Maybe it's just the concentrated media attention, but it seems like bicyclists are a special breed of sportspersons that will cheat no matter what. It doesn't matter to them one bit that there's no personal achievement whatsoever. They could ride on e-bikes as well, wouldn't make a difference.
