What did they just find ?
(this might be old news but hadn't seen it)
was announced at 6pm !
This is news !
Rasmussen won't be there tomorrow !
What does Rabobank know that we still don't ?
they are probably pre-empting his doping results arent they?
is getting pretty nuts...
contador to win then? providing he's not next...
than Manolo Sainz he was a great manager, it's possible...
Only 28 left and a french will win it...
if Rasmussen has been found guilty doubts have to be cast on Contador. He's matched him yard for yard virtually and its Contador's first tour. I hope it turns out i'm wrong. At the moment i wouldnt be shocked if everyone was cheating/on drugs/transfusions etc
to his team about where he really was...
So not in Mexico with your wife, Rasmussen ?
Where then ?
With Lance Armstrong's doctor maybe ?
to the story in english? My french is only GCSE standard
However, Rabobank have since discovered that Rasmussen lied to them over where and what he was up to during the month of June when he was in fact in Italy and not in Mexico as he had told them
can you ?
into my pocket
Does the tour have a future? Will it ever be able to regain its credibility?
Di Luca, Mazzoleni, Petacchi, Kessler, Sinkewitz, Vinokourov, Moreni, Rasmussen...
The list just keeps getting longer...
or they are on bad chemical aid !
Things just get worse and worse, I grew up watching the tour, spent all those years trying to explain to all my friends at school why it was the greatest sporting event around, why I loved it so much. I watched immense displays of power, endurance and courage and when the whole drug stuff seemed to enter my conscience (the year that TGV got done and all crossed the line holding arms) I thought "oh it must be a one off thing or oh the tour directors must have got it wrong". But then it carried on and on and I watched everyone get revealed as on some sort of drugs. I sort of hoped that by now it would have all been sorted out but then this happens and you know what I've had enough, fuck it. I've pretty much lost all faith and all love in what I used to value so much and it's very very sad.
Moreni apparenly admitted !
Might be the first time...
Genuinely shocking news. Pat McQuaid was on the radio this morning, trying to pretend that everything was fine in the sport.
'Mr McQuaid, wouldn't you say that you seem to be, well, in denial a little bit?'
'Not at all. We'll bounce back from this!'
Shut up McQuaid. This year's tour has turned into an utter, utter farce. And I've really, really been enjoying the battles between Rasmussen and Contodor over the past couple of stages.
Why did he (Rsasmussen) not just tell them where he was?! I'm angry.
with a good doctor ?
As for Contador :
1. he's Manolo Sainz's little boy
2. he was cited at first in the affair of last year ( one of the runner of Astana ) even if he was apparently cleaned after
3. apart from Lance, all great runners of discovery channel were convicted ( arguably after quitting the team ) : Heras, Hamilton, Landis...
4. noticed how good Popovych is this year when he was shit last year ?
I am genuinely concerned about Contador now. I'm hoping he is completely clean... I don't know how cycling can bounce back from this. A couple of team riders who are knocking about 140th in the standings? That would create ripples in the media.
The pre-race favourite and general classification leader being thrown out in the space of 48 hours? Tidal waves.
1. Rabobank is staying in the Tour.
2. Vinokourov has taken the same lawyer as Landis and is confident to be proven not guilty...
samples taken after his second win ( I think the answer is yes ) or second part of the samples from his first win ( in this case no as he has to officially appeal on the results ) ?
from his first win. I'm kind of praying they come back negative. They won't, but it's nice to believe...
particularly if it's confirmed than samples from his second win are positive too...
