Quote from Martin Luther King: “Many people fear nothing more terribly than to take the position which stands out sharply and clearly from prevailing opinion. The tendency of most is to adopt a view that is so ambiguous that it will include everything and so popular that it will include everybody…The saving of our world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.”
Scott is extremely talented, but even more impressive is his character:

Sound advice... quote from the post here...
"..Maybe we should spend more time and energy into changing the culture of doping in sports being as the current drug testing is seemingly so ineffective. Of course there are always going to be cheaters and D-bags in every profession but if we could minimize that from within, build trust that the guy or gal next to you is clean, we might be able to effectively clean up sport."
Good on you.

This is actually an old quote from a racer during the Tour de France over 10 years ago -- Christophe Bassons. The former rider has an admirable and insightful position about doping which is expounded upon in a current news piece. The article quotes him yesterday in response to the recent Floyd Landis interview as follows:
“I don’t think I was courageous not to take drugs,” the former Festina, Française des Jeux and Jean Delatour rider told Cyclingnews.
"...Doping is always a response to a void, a need – whether it’s for money, or success, or love, or something else.”
