Only two people in the cycling community have called to congratulate Voet for trying to clean up the sport and save future generations of cyclists from using their bodies to experiment with future generations of drugs. From the rest there's been only silence and denial. It doesn't surprise Voet. What surprises him, really, is that he was the one to come out and talk. "Because once you talk, then it's all over," he says. "You're outside the system, and no one will ever let you back in. I can understand that. Just as I can understand the fans who call me a bastard or a stool pigeon. They can call me a bastard and a stool pigeon all they want, but they can't call me a liar."
