Cycling really didn't need another scandal right now...
For fucks sake.
by addiction born of other drugs abuse ( at least with professional cyclists )
i'm hoping that le tour comes through this year scandal free. blind optimism with the whole ASO UCI WADA triple threat going on.
went to see it in london last year all by myself and had muchos fun, but then got fucked off lost all interest with all the scandal.
Should be quite a few brits in it this year too?
a few, hopefully mark cavendish could get a stage or two as well. though with the olympics this summer i'm not sure whether they'll all be in it/aim to get all the way to paris
He won one in the Giro, didn't he? And the prologue in Romandie the other day. He's on FIRE.
and 2 second places. sure he's rubbish uphill, but i reckon he's got a fair chance of stealing a stage, he's much improved on last year lyle!
but competition won't be the same as in the giro. Even if Boonen isn't here.
But on the Tour, there should be Boonen ( with Steegmans ), Hushovd, McEwen ( on top form, not like in the Giro ), Casper, Hunter, Bennati, Förster, Zabel, maybe Nazon...
It'll be very hard to win one...
