That's totally brilliant. Seems to make more sense than winning and having the title removed down the road.

Strategy doesn't seem to be working for Ulrich.

I looked at the tour results for some of those years. In some cases you have to go back to 8th place to find a guy that wasn't banned at one point.

And even then his team was sanctioned for rampant doping 4 years later.

How about this for a winning strategy: DON'T DOPE, but make sure all your teammates dope up. Have them pull you up the mountains, win the stage, win the tour, and claim you didn't cheat!

Or does this mean if anyone on your team dopes then your forfeit?
New strategy, Lantern rouge clean .... wait. Your grandchildren can claim on your behalf.

I've sometimes wondered if there is something to this with Lance. It's my if he really is clean theory.
