So, who came in second?...I must say though, to say one won the Tour de France by disqualification of the first place winner sounds a lot worse...Hahaha...

I really wanted to believe what Landis had done during the TDF was true. I can still remember my excitement and enthusiasm as I watched stage 17 live on OLN. From what I know now, I am about 80% sure he dopped with 20% holding out for some medical explaination.

TDF insiders still say that 8-10% of the field was dopping. TDF rules test a few random riders, the stage winners and the top 3 overall riders (I beleive).

The Tour has taken a serious hit with Landis and the pre race dopping scandle. Race rules need to be ammended to include an iron fist. Every rider needs to be tested before and during the race. Those guilty of dopping should at least be banned for more than 2 years if not receive a lifetime ban from racing. Somehow I do not see that happening

Im with Doody on this one. I think they should test everyone before, during and after the race.

Oh hell.. Let'em all juice up and we can have the Bionic Man win the race. That would be great advertising for Drug Manufacturers....

Its a really sad situation. I am going to start just following little league and pee wee football so I can be sure the athletes involved are human beings and not cyberneticly enhanced sports machines fueled by equine testosterone and epinephrine.

Maybe if the tour de france was done with motorcycles instead of bicycles.
