  • oh for f**ks sake - just when you think it can't get any worst...

  • I don't think it can now. Odds on the race being called off?

  • I seriously doubt they'd call it off, and neither should they. There's still a clean cyclist in the field working on his chance to win Le Tour.

  • mr_tom There's still a clean cyclist in the field

    ..and a pint to anyone who can find him! ;-)

  • Shit. And that was the team I was following.

  • what's with the blood transfusion business? is taking drugs passe now? only the fresh blood of a virgin will do now..

  • epo

  • yeah, I think Astana was at or near the top of the team ratings after the time trial.

  • All we need now is the Chicken to fail a test. Which frankly would not be surprising.

  • if we can get him to take one that is.

  • im really pissed off with this,i was also following the team astana and.......we should have expected it:(

  • natureboy if we can get him to take one that is.

    Gah. So true.

    Plus (probably unfarily) you have to question how such a puny specimen can haul himself round.

    Anyone read the Sunday Time articlewith a former friend fingering (oo-er) him? (Admittedly by David Walsh who has been hounding Lance for years.)

  • Us puny specimens can be pretty good at dragging ourselves uphill :-)

    No good at dragging yourselves to fax machines though!

    ;-)

  • Hang on.. have they tested the B sample? How come everyone is "non-negative" and then have to wait a week for the next test and yet Vino is positive immediately?
    Also, why does this sh1t keep getting revealed before the team, etc. have a chance to dispute it?
    Now, sure he's a dodgy cheating cyclist but why does this same lab keep breaching the rules?

  • he's asked for a b sample to be done, so we should know more tomorrow. i really fucking hope its not true.

  • Bit late now..

  • The B will be positive. I bet 10 beers (payable at Rollapaluza VIII - why not come and watch some cycle sport where the competitors openly admit they take drugs?) that it is.

    It's not the end of cycling. The problem is that this should have happened 40 years ago, or even 50 years ago, after Mallejac nearly died on the Ventoux. Cycling has had a long time to sort this out, but seems only to be getting to grips with it now.

    Guys like Marc Madiot been talking about 'cyclisme a deux vitesses' - 2 speed cycling for many years now.

  • Buffalo Bill Rollapaluza VIII - why not come and watch some cycle sport where the competitors openly admit they take drugs?

    laughed, did I.

    a great tagline

    It's not like they've been without warning: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_de_Fra­nce#Doping
    "Early Tour riders were said to have consumed alcohol and used ether, among other substances, as a means of dulling the pain of competing in endurance cycling."

    Who's carrying my booze to Dunwich for me?

    Plenty o' room in my belly, pal.
