Wow. It’s just getting worse and worse. Vinokourov tests positive and his Astana team withdraws from the Tour. A Cofidis rider is caught and Cofidis is pulled out. And now the yellow jersey rider, Rasmussen is kicked out by is own team over missing some doping controls earlier in the year.
Wow. People thought last year was the low water mark… Something’s got to change in cycling.

Dude, what do people think about Lance now? I guess it doesn’t really matter.
Lance was on Hardball last night making cancer screening a political issue. He got Rick Perry to fund screening for low income people here in Texas. Lance had a 50-50 chance of living, then to show he was better, won a little bike race 7 times in a row. He is now on to much more important things.
I’m so over the Tour. Who cares! Since Lance is out and after the way the tour officials treated him most people could care less about that race. Been the lowest watched tour in years. Bet those tour officials wish they had Lance now! I can’t wait for football season.
I think people are still holding out hope that Lance did not dope. It would absolutely _crush_ people, if Lance was ever implicated in doping. That would be cycling’s, and cancer’s, low water mark.
Tho I think it’s possible to win clean, and Lance might be one of these once in a generation type people – Jordan, Tiger, Federer, it’s hard to ignore the fact that 4-5 of his top rivals, that he totally crushed, were all doping.
