This years Tour De France has probs, two time stage winner Alexander Vinokoruv, has tested positive for doping and his whole team withdrew!!! that took fifth place contender Andreas Kloden out as well. And the whole road scene is suffering as a result of all of this. Not agreeing that they should get off, but the UCI, could probably handle it a little better. Oh wait, aren’t they the ones running this new Olympic system. Yeah, this is going to be a messJuly 25, 2007 at 10:59 am #48305paulcMember
I have been watching it since the beginning. It seems the road scene is seriously tainted with doping etc. Ivan Basso was picked up by Discovery last year to race the tour this year. He was let go in April due to drug investigations in Spain. Tyler Hamilton was banned for 2 years for the same thing Vino supposedly has done. He was scheduled back to race the Giro this year and was let go due to the drug investigations in Spain as well. Rassmussen was just banned from competing in the worlds, I think, and the Olympics because he failed to let the authorites know his wherabouts two weeks prior to the tour or something. Seems a little fishy to me as well. The list goes on and on.July 25, 2007 at 11:30 am #48309
Basso, was actually suspended because he had thought about doing it but hadn’t. They dropped most of the investigation, cause they could not prove anything. My point is that they are on a witch hunt, for what reason, maybe to make themselves look better, who knows, but their actions, and the way they have handled it, have cost road cycling dearly, through loss of sponsors and cash, and now they’re running the BMX show too!!July 25, 2007 at 12:25 pm #48311
Well the question becomes how many elite bmxers are using dope to gain an advantage ??July 25, 2007 at 12:44 pm #48315
My point is handle it better, and promote it rather than tear it downJuly 25, 2007 at 12:49 pm #48317
