We have a hint. The article said "he", which means it was one of the male competitors.

Got me wondering if Cadel's doctors forgot to give him a note for what he must have been taking for the owies he got in his early crash.

I have a feeling WADA is going to explode soon. The editorial in the journal Nature is awesome. Got to get rid of this bad science to create some good science to catch the cheaters.

The lab better have it's I's dotted and T's crossed or they're going to make everything even worse.

L'Equipe often seems to jump the gun, so I don't know how certain this, but they are reporting that it is Jimmy Casper for corticoides (steroids?).

You can ride in the tour, as long as you have a note from your Doctor... No excuses for you!

I didn't see the Nature papers linked anywhere, so here they are:

The main paper:

http://www.nature.com/nature/journal...df/454692a.pdf

editorial commentary on the paper:

http://www.nature.com/nature/journal...df/454667a.pdf

Classic innumeracy, see it all the time when prosecutors use DNA evidence.

I ferverently hope that Vansevenant didn't get busted for Tranquilizers, and penalized by having an hour taken off his time....
