Craziness. The Tour starts tomorrow and last year’s top 5 finishers are gone from the race. The two heavy favorites are gone. 1 team has been decimated. It’s crazy. I suppose no one is really clean in the sport of cycling, but I’d like to hope that it’s still possible to win without doping. I think it’s probably much much harder to, but I’d like to think it’s still possible.
I’ve been reading “Game of Shadows” about the BALCO investigation. Man, all the drugs invariably do make you go much much faster than being non doped.
Of course, I suppose the question is that if last year’s spots 2-5 were doping, how did Lance end up beating all of them? Hrm…..
