Nobody begrudges a Jamaican one two three at the 100m but cycling apparently is a different bucket of spanners.
All that was at least in part also due to the UCI's constantly degrading standing among Olympic sports federations. Cycling was actually not very far from getting kicked out of the Olympics completely because of the doping issues.

My point is not doping but national training programmes.

I wasn't disagreeing with you, I just made a more general point.

Track cycling is certainly not the best example anyway because if there is a sport where doping is an institution...

I don't think the British were any more clean than anyone else during the bad old days. In fact the only reason most people got away with it was that even with doping they were too shit to win anything.
