Here's what Sport24 readers had to say about George testing positive for EPO:

"He also raced for US Postal team along with Lance Armstrong. Anybody associated with US Postal or a team mate of Lance is a doper!"
- TheRealWarrenB

"David George rode for US Postal in 1999 and 2000." - Sheamus Drager

"Everybody in the pro cycling sphere dopes. The athletes that test clean are just not caught. It's a harsh reality but unfortunately the truth." - edwin.i.j

"This dude has just lanced his reputation and future in the 'sport'."
- ClassWarTrotsky

"In 2011 there were 3314 out of competition blood tests for international cycling, in tennis there were 21." - johan.blertsie.cilliers

"Now what would be news is if a cyclist returned a negative result."
- fishycraig

"Is there anybody who is NOT a cheat in cycling? Oh wait, those are the people who finish last, but at least they have dignity!" tamlinvanheerver

"The pro peloton is doped to the gills, to this day."
- donovan.jackson.37

"This is the tip of the iceberg."
- tom.theunisen.12

"These guys should be banned indefinitely from the sport and given jail sentences."
- flynn.govender

"Hope he never cycles again."
- botha.fourie

"He tested positive while @ US Postal, and that's why he came back to SA, he has never been clean just stayed under the radar."
- wildwoody62

"Ban him for life if he is guilty." - guy.decafmeyer  

"George, while upset about your doping, I thank you for coming clean and not lying further to the public." - squeegee.pilot

"David George, you want to make right? Tell us where you got it, from whom, and who else is using it. Because it isn't just you. It's all of you who disappear up the road after the first hill, leaving a second group puffing and panting behind you, a group that no matter how hard the individuals train, can never keep up." - david.jackson.37

"You and Lance anger me immensely."
- Skwertno1

"This is really bad for cycling. Amstrong and now this dude? What is wrong with hardwork?" - Deleagagu

"All about the money at the end of the day." - Hugh Influence

Another sporting icon's reputation bites the dust. (AFP)
