The Explainer: Are we better off now than we were before?

Dear Explainer,
I am probably as sick of it as you are when it comes to doping, but given that you’ve been writing about nothing but for the last few weeks, I thought I might ask one more question on the subject.

A look back at the most recent big-time doping cases, especially what you’ve written about, pretty much involves old-time stuff: Ullrich, Armstrong and even Contador’s case was from two years ago.

What has me wondering, though, is after all of this noise, do you think the sport is any cleaner? I mean it was pretty open back in 1998 when the Festina scandal hit, but is it just hidden now? I’m betting there was a lot of money spent on the effort. Was it worth it?
