    I so hoped it wasn't going to be, but the chance that someone could blow by world class riders like that and maintain the lead without some form of doping just seems so unlikely...

    Yesterday's stage is more indicative of what happens when someone gains a 90 second lead on the end of a climb with 20 or 30 k to go... they get caught and spit out the back at the end.

    3 positives (and counting) in the TdF.

    No positives in the Giro.

    Okay?

    Are you saying that the racers in the Giro didn't dope or the organizers of the Giro didn't test well enough?

    They all do it, they have to to compete, sometimes they go a little over and they get caught.

    If you want doping gone, positive tests are part of cleaning house. I think its a good thing, it means the gap between testing and doping might be closing. (and for the record, i dont even really care IF they dope or not)

    Either.

    Both.

    Neither.

    Definitely an interesting fact.

    I think it is pretty clear that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, its a duck. So far anyone who I have seen who has shown an ability to just run way from the lead group has turned up juiced. I think you have to think about Contador and Lance as well. But of course the other option is theay are all on something and the guys with the better something are just getting caught.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    So disappointing. I knew that ride on stage 9 was too good to be true. Do these idiots just assume they aren't going to get caught?

    Has anyone seen the beltran video yet? The doping control agent basically has to sprint to catch up with him.
