I want to puke

I guess there's a reason Vinokourov performed so well over the last couple of days after a week of lackluster cycling. *sigh*

I admit that this possibility was in the back of my mind after Vino's amazing turnaround. Homologous blood transfusion -- that's what Tyler Hamilton was busted for not so long ago.

Reactions: Why why why why why?


  1. It's all so...so...bad. I'm at a loss, really. I want to believe so badly in pro cycling. I've enjoyed the Tour this year more than the last couple. But, this is harsh. Maybe he did it, maybe he didn't. I have no clue. BUT, what I do know is that everyone touting the 'system' as working is wrong. No matter whether he did or didn't, he deserves to have his B sample tested without people knowing who it belongs to. Do you think there is anyone in France, much less the lab, that doesn't know who has a sample coming??? How is that not biased testing? Now, I'm not implying that it would change the test, but it is still a flaw in the 'system'.
    Ugh. Makes me so SAD.

    Great roundup, Fritz; thanks for all the links. It's the Tour de Frauds. Who isn't just sickened?

  3. I was upset about this yesterday and a coworker of mine pinged me this link: http://infospigot.typepad.com/infospigot_the_chronicles/
