Why has Oscar Oscar Pereiro ceded victory?
Being new to paying attention to the TdF, but having been an amateur boxer, I cannot fathom why this guy is content with a 2nd place finish. Why isn't he going to challenge Landis with every thing he's got to win the TdF? The way I'm hearing it, it would seem that this would be a matter of bad sportsmanship - that the riders are expected to hold their place during this ceremonial champagne sipping 96 mile tour down the stretch.
I just don't get it - as a former competitor and as a sports fan.
Can anyone enlighten me? I'm not trolling, being antagonistic, I am honestly perplexed.
EDIT pardon the double typing of his name
