have been watching most of the tour de france this year and have noticed the usual drug scandels going on. Shocked

i still cant get my head round how the pro riders ( or the full team ) think they can get still get away with it.

although i still think ( sadley ) there will be the few riders who slip through the net.

riccardo ricco was great to watch climbing the mountains but he might aswell of been on one of the scooters as he tested positive for CERA, which is a type of EPO that had only passed its clinical trials last november. And of course he had the cheek to say that he'd never taken drugs Rolling Eyes


now lets not have to start testing people on the forum rides eh Laughing

Because they've been getting away with EPO use for 15 years and the rewards are great.
Look at the amount of money all the Tour winners have made in the years after their wins.

It now appears on the surface that they've caught all the cheaters this year but they have targeted a select few who they were already pretty certain were on the sauce. Also ASO wanted to look to be doing more than the UCI in their battle.

On a happier note they all seemed to look a lot more tired this year at the end which hopefully means things are cleaner.
