yep - the chicken is burnt.
Levi's evil plan of just wheelsucking and letting everyone ahead of him destroy themselves has finally come together.
What happened? I don't get VS.
I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
Stay calm and bring a towel.
Normally, the first three guys in the GC stand on the podium together in Paris at the end of the Tour. This year, there may only be two guys on the podium.
The announcer will say "The winner of all of the jerseys are these two guys...they were the only two guys to not flunk a drug test, "miss" a drug test, or have their team withdraw because a member of the team got caught cheating.
Pro cycling...the ONLY sport that can make pro wrestling look "clean" by comparison.
Who the hell wants to watch this anymore? This sucks. You get excited by a victory and the next day that guy's kicked out. You get excited by someone else and -- same thing. I'm done with the tour.
Link for anyone that hasn't seen it.
Normally, I never watch any sports, just never got into it. Now, when I'm finally getting into the TdF all this doping crap happens.
Broken until next season
This is a lot different from a doping positive. He got fired from his team for breaching the part of his contract that requires him to be available for unannounced doping tests throughout the year. He missed two in June. You're allowed to miss three. The team (somehow) found out that he lied about his location during the two times he missed the test and fired him. The reason this distinction is important is because he can be hired by any other team. He didn't test positive.
This is crazy. The riding and attacks have been great but everytime thay win they are thrown out. I wasted my money getting cable for the TOur this year!!!
You may have a hard time finding any sport to watch. Little league baseball's pretty clean. Desperate divorcees to boot!
At this point...this isn't a doping issue.
It's a rules issue.
He thumbed his nose at the reporting rules and got what he deserved.
Hip, "Halffast Celebrity Fashionista"
Lame. They should have never let him start the tour. After they let him start that's it, they should have let him finish. What's the point of pulling him now? They have the same information now that they had at the beginning of the tour! I think this is worst for Rabobank than a positive test.
As far as the "chicken" is concerned I do think he's the man, unless in the future he actually does test positive.
He knew he wouldn't win without doping and on the chance he could skirt the system, he took it.
I watched the stage today. I just can't believe this. What is going on with the tour this year is beyond words....including still an unnamed champion for last year.
So who hires him because I want to see a freaking climbing specialist win the danged tour.

Honestly, the other thread with six pages started an hour before this was not good enough?? Please check the forum before starting a thread like this. Thanks.
Just get back up on the bike. That'll heal in no time...
I think cycling is cutting off its nose to spite its face.
