Valverde Clean?

Maybe the reason Valverde has stunk up the race is because he is riding clean this year. Any thoughts?

Same for Oscar Pereiro, no?

And maybe Levi is not attacking because he actually is the best clean rider, and without dope, you just cannot attack like a doper can.

Contador.........hmmmmmm...

I would hate to find out that such a young talent like Contador might be doping.

Perhaps Levi knows more about the doping in the peloton and is biding his time?

Can Rasmussen escape the charges on his heels?

I'm beginning to think that almost all of the riders who race in these grand tours are on some type of banned substance. It is a sad state of affairs when even cycling fans are beginning to lose faith...

no offense, but where have you been? doping has been with cycling since the very beginning. any fan that thinks this is something new is out of their mind.

Could be. After all, Fuentes is a little tied up right now.

There aren't any, so my bet would be yes.

Actually Fuentes is working again and free as a bird. He's actually been giving talks on anti doping... which is silly. but true.

Contador has been with Saiz since he was 19. He was mentioned in the Liberty document in OP. He's lucky to be racing at all this year IMO.
