Let’s make it 8 years (lifelong is probably too difficult legally) for any willful cheating, and only reduce it in case of accidental use (this DOES happen) or with serious cooperation with the authorities.

Also, none of that nonsense about doped riders returning as managers or in some other capacity. The argument can certainly made for some who have done so and really made a positive difference (no pun intended), but right now it’s just too much. But more on that some other time.
