UCI Says No Further Positive Tests On Tour

Always good news, and great to see:

PARIS (AP)—The International Cycling Union says there were no further positive doping tests at this year Tour de France.

The UCI said in a statement Monday that the “the last samples received from the Chatenay-Malabry, Lausanne and Cologne laboratories all showed a negative result.”

That means only Alexandr Kolobnev failed a doping test at the Tour.

The Russian tested positive midway through the race when traces of a substance called Hydrochlorothiazide were found in his urine sample. It is a diuretic that can also be used as a masking agent hiding the presence of other drugs.

UCI President Pat McQuaid welcomed the news, saying that it “highlights the quality of the various anti-doping measures brought in by the UCI in recent years.”

Pat McQuaid just reeks of a pathetic incumbent politician willing to do anything for re-election.

All we need or want from him is a "we'd like to thank the riders for upholding the spirit of sportsmanship"-type of comment, otherwise shut up.

Considering the scope of the job at hand - cleaning up the peloton - a junkyard dog was and continues to be needed.
Don;t know McQuaid, but sure seems like he fits the bill - sinks his teeth in and doesn;t let go.

A dirty job needs a snarly big dog with sharp teeth. He gets my
Lets hope he continues to rip doped riders asses off! (when they deserve it)
