    So I'm guessing that 1) your not a cyclist and 2) you had nothing better to do than try to piss a few off.

    I think out of all the American riders Hincapie has the best shot at win. I cant believe the Ullrich and Basso would risk getting the boot with using drugs. I would have bet money that they were the one's that would have won this year, most likely Ullrich.

    Who?


    OLN does not come in at all on our cable, even though it is a "carried" channel. Comcast tells me the problem is in my house. Yeah... ONE CHANNEL out of 70+ doesn't come in on any TV in my house, but the problem is MINE, not theirs. Whatever... :rolleyes:

    I agree, Ullrich. I'm curious how they prove Blood Doping. Strange too how cycling and football (sorry soccer) are disliked in North America and huge everywhere else in the world.

    Holy s**t, they really cleaned house...

    You know, MLB should be forced to read these stories until their eyes bleed. Maybe then their "anti-drug efforts" wouldn't look like a weak-ass comedy routine.

    I think they check the red blood cell count, and if it's abnormally high, even for someone with a superhuman cardiovascular system, that's a big red flag to check for other things like erythropoetin. Dunno for sure, though.
    Conversely, I wonder how you'd prove that you weren't[/i] doping...

    If MLB did the right thing there wouldn't be enough players left to play a rained out game. It's a shame cause I really enjoy the game, but I just can't watch a bunch of muscle bound roid freaks trashing the game.

    This really is a first though. The CAS and UCI have been ignoring the problem for years. It's a great move though.

    What is funny is how people think that Cycling is a sissy sport:rolleyes: No other athlete in any other sport in the world could complete the three weeks of the TDF. Hell the Ironman is only a one day event.

    It's much easier to relate to a 'game' when you are fat and out of shape, a lot tougher relating to a 'sport' that requires fitness and conditioning. :D
