That was fucking shit. Climbs amounted to nothing but the tacks ruined everything. It was worth staying up for two things.
1. The breakaway. What a ride from the 5 of them and a great win from LL Sanchez.
2. Sagan. What a machine. He could turn into a genuine GC contender in the next few years.

The rest was a yawn fest. Narrow roads with over eager crowds, and a GC group of pensioners on a leisurely Sunday ride. Lame.

watched the last 70kms at a bar in malaucene, great to see FDJ with another win.

though i wondered what was up with vandevelde, he didn't seem to have anything to offer in the final sprint.

3 pints of some awesome weiss beer + 2 croque monsieurs + mont ventoux. . good afternoon.

No B sample tested yet so lets wait and see.

Out of all the Cyclists in the Peloton I would never have taken Franky boy to be a doper. It's shit like this that makes it super hard for the casual viewer to like the sport.

No, of course I thought he was a doper. Hasn't he had to go through shit like this with some doctor before or something? My memory is a little hazy. I think all of them are. The sport isn't clean and never will be. You cant be sure as to who is and who isnt doping because the chemists are always one or two steps ahead of the anti-doping agencies.

If Frank's doing it, are we to assume Andy isn't? There's too much at stake for these guys to not dope imo. They need to increase the bans from 2 years to 5years+. Maybe then it will make them think twice about doing it.

The statement from Radioshack sounds like they're hanging FSchleck out to dry...

"On the subject of Xipamide the team can declare the following: it is not a product that is present in any of the medicine that the team use and the reason for the presence of the Xipamide in the urine sample of Mr Schleck is unclear to the team. Therefore the team is not able to explain the adverse findings at this point. However, the team is fully determined to co-operate with the anti-doping authorities in order to resolve the matter."

One positive (excuse the pun)is at least they're still catching possible culprits

He got caught, but not charged a few years ago, transferring money to Dr Fuentes. The most crooked doctor of them all, alongside Ferrari.

I hate it when riders like Wiggo get all high and mighty when asked about doping. Fact is he and all his Sky buddies are probably doping as well, just look at some of the mgmt they have hired....history of doping runs strong in that team.

Wiki'ed 'diuretics' - so am I right in saying that they are banned because it helps mask performance enhancing drugs by flushing it out of the body?

maybe he could use the shane warne defence "mum gave it to me"

i believe last time he & andy used the "well we bought the drugs, but we didn't take any" and the Luxembourg cycling federation was cool with that.

HUGE stage today!!

i did the middle 80kms including the tourmalet and the aspin back in june, so cannot wait to sit down and relive the tourment my legs felt at the time.

could be a big chance for cadel, fingers crossed anyways.

just went down for breakfast, frank schleck is front page news here in belgium.

front page, second page.

and then about 4 pages worth in the special 16 page tour de france section, it's all in belgian-ese but i could make out quite a bit of what the articles were about.

vacansolei have only 4 riders left in the tour. must be tough for those guys.

i wonder if any more will drop out today, how many will make it to paris i wonder? johnny hoogerland is still riding, so that's good.
