Iban needs to hire a better doctor. Being slow and getting busted is unacceptable.

By BF logic, then, all those who beat Mayo must be on the sauce. Frank Schleck is your new champion.

For a climbing specialist, he really sucked this year. All I remember about Mayo was every mountain stage Phil pointing out he had cracked or lost the wheel.

Don't these dumbasses know how to time this stuff to avoid detection? If 24-year-old Contador can figure it out...

Right. The real problem isn't the fact that they're doping, but that some guys don't know how to do it right. They're the ones that are really ruining the sport.

Mayo's performance swings since 2002 have been epic. I'm not sure how anyone could be surprised to read that he's been been on the sauce.

Haha! QOTD...

I forget Mayo's doping history but I know there is one. Didn't he test positive on another GT in the past, and wasn't he one of the ones on Euskaltel that has been fingered in OP...?

He sucks when he gets off the juice. I thought he cleaned himself up and finally figured how to ride well, clean, but I guess I am wrong, so fark him...

We actually talked about who was doping on the ride Saturday.

Who's doping:
The guys making "comebacks" who have had giant swings in form for the last 5 years. Remember Julich last year? Kicked ass 5 years ago, then nothing. Went to CSC and had a sudden increase in form, and now back to zip...
The guys at the bottom of the pile, just trying to keep their contracts so they don't have to work in the factory.
The guys at the very top of the pile. They have the Docs and $ to get away with it

Who's not:

The anonymous guys in the middle. They just ride along, content with their place.

I would guess the guys at the bottom aren't doping because they know their contracts are safe. Look who is in the bottom 15 - Hushovd, Forster, De Groot, Steegman, Vansevenant finished dead last in 2006 too so he's obviously feeling comfy for some reason.

You can discount the tours. It's the guys finishing in the bottom 10-20 of classics that have reason to worry. You can be forgiven for a low finish in the tour as long as u can carry 14-15 bidons at a time.

Also the codename "Ivan May" appeared in Operation Puerto as far as I can recall.

Now it's Mayo's turn to test positive

The wheels on the bus go round and round...

Wait, I thought BF logic (insert oxymoron joke here) was that if you had consistently great performances (i.e., didn't have to recover), *then* you were doping.

Sigh, its so tough to keep up with the theories here.

Yeah, go on brother.

*I* thought BF logic was that if a rider had a positive A sample, you were supposed to tell everyone on BF to shut up, give the rider the benefit of the doubt and wait for the B sample. And when the B sample comes back positive also, you say wait for the hearing. And when the hearing confirms the validity of the test findings, you tell everyone to stop judging people guilty until proven innocent and wait for the appeal. And when the appeal still fails, you just repeat the cycle with the next rider with a positive A sample.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED that any professional cyclist would resort to illicit doping, particulary in Le Tour.



Round up the usual suspects.
