Damn. My bad. You're right.

So, does Levi stick with the team, or does he go somewhere else again? I don't see him and Contador sharing the spotlight on one team, and Levi is running low in opportunities to win Le Tour.

Just when you thought it was over...now Iban Mayo tested positive for EPO during the last week of the Tour.

WoW thats great that more are getting caught.. I guess it is now out with the old and in with the new.
I just hope that sponsers will still continue to support the sport that many riders have given so much of their lives to.

You knew there were going to be at least a couple more. The Spanish took a big hit last year with their scandal, but they still managed to place quite a few guys in the top ten. Including the winner.

Even with all the dopes TV ratings were up according to Velonews ...,
Closer to home, the Versus television network reported that its 2007 Tour de France television coverage reached 20.5 million households - up from even the healthy 2005 numbers during Lance Armstrong's final win. The network also claimed an 11 percent increase in total viewership for 2007 over 2006 for its live morning broadcasts when digital video recorder usage (i.e. TiVo) is included.
