    Default Rasmussen taken out of Tour de France

    Tour de France leader Michael Rasmussen was removed from the race by his team after winning Wednesday's stage, the biggest blow yet in cycling's doping-tainted premier event...
    The 33-year-old rider, who won Wednesday's stage, had looked set to win the race, which ends Sunday in Paris. But Tour officials had questioned why he was allowed to take the start on July 7 in London, England.

    Discovery/USPS now has a chance to go 9 straight in the Tour!! Will Levi come up to take his turn on the podium?

    Could you imagine if Barry Bonds was suspended from playing right now, just shy of the record?

    I wonder who's next? Although, I don't think very many riders are juiced this year, as the pace has not been too horrendous.

    It seemed like everyone was afraid to go out and burn out, and then have to resort to an aid.

    I told myself not to watch or pay attention this year. Yet again I have watched, albeit not as attentively as years past.

    They all cheat. Except Discovery Channel of course.

    This has been a very bad week for the sport, can the Tour survive?

    I feel sorry for the clean cyclists. It must be a pain in the A$$ to spend just as much time going through doping test as they do on their bikes.

    Has there ever been a marathon runner caught for doping? Do marathon runners get tested as regularly as cyclist?

    The Tour won't stop booting people or faking drug tests until a Frog wins it.

    I have my suspicions about this, but they won't be able to pull that off this year. Also, Rasmussen was pulled by his own team (Danish), after almost all of the riders refused to start the race yesterday in protest. I don't know if they were protesting Rasmussen's inclusion in the race, or if they were protesting doped riders in general.

    I think the tour will be okay with regard to the scandals, but I don't know if it can survive the apathy of the country. The French riders are not performing at anywhere near the level of riders from other countries. T-mobile is going to make a decision on their sponsorship continuing past this year, some think they are not going to continue due to the sport being tainted by cheaters. A few on the T-Mobile team have been caught cheating.

    Hmmm. Must be a sprinter; he's already wearing le maillot vert.

    And when they finally do (after all the non-French teams are disqualified or disbanded due to eroding sponsor support - ie Festina, for example), the winner should be tested for 180 consecutive days...
