Tour Day France

The title is my little nod to Bob Roll. So what do I think about how this year's tour went down? The doping...no surprise. I'm actually fairly astonished they didn't catch more riders doping. I'm glad that Rabobank pulled the Chicken from the race. I know a mountain climber needs to be skinny, but that dude's skeletal physique creeped me out. I really, really hope that Contador rode clean, but his ties to the Spanish doping scandal don't cheer me much. Finally; I'm really happy for Leipheimer winning the time trial today. His mild manners often make him seem to be a rather pedestrian cyclist and his performance today showcased a killer instinque that I knew had to lurk under the surface.

Good post. Wondering if dope is here to stay. My assumption is that a majority of riders have had dealings with it.
With or without dope the tour is thrilling to follow. This year was no exception!
