You may have heard this today but several of the Pro Riders are in France training for the TDF. Mainly up in the mountains but one of those riders ran into a spot of bother today. He was up in the Alps training on part of the TDF route and he was stopped by the local Gendarme for having no lights on his bike. Hang on-- Middle of day and a Team car behind him- Just a normal occurence at this time of year and even Normal French cyclists would be doing this at any time of the year. Without the team car of course.
But the rider was not French--It was Contador. Glad to see the French can still bear a grudge.
The road apparantly had a few tunnels on it and Contadour did fail a drugs test lat year but the Spanish authority has not banned him as it was not his fault.
