    And 9 others had "abnormal blood values" from the pre-tour testing. They won't be reprimanded, but thier teams will be notified for health reasons.

    You've got to admit Bruyneel is doing something right. Who are the five? Floyd, Tyler, Heras, Manny and...? I'm assuming you're not counting Boonen.

    Don't forget the nandralone positive by Benoit Joachim way way back (2000?). He was duly sacked and then rehired. He was on the Tour team the next year and for many years afterwards.

    Agreed..... he covered the dope pretty well.... And some wonder why Astana wasnt invited to the tour
    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!
