Here is to hoping for a CLEAN and controversy free TDF this year, and get the focus of this sport where it needs to be.


One can hope anyway

Thanks for clarifying that... I didn't recall the word "Various" in my original thread title. I was wondering if I had been inhaling too many anti-seize compound fumes!

Good luck with that. At this point, TDF controversy is a bigger industry than the TDF. Sports news sells more papers describing the problems than declaring the winner so they'll turn any non-controversy into one just to sell their product. Every anti-doping official is looking to make their own name by busting somebody in the biggest event in a sport where there is not a downside to making doping allegations.
