Contador was ridin' dirty

    There's your Holy Shit! moment from this year's Tour de France.

    I can't find anywhere that says how long the suspension is. Is it just indefinite until they hear his appeal?

    Cycling has turned parody into reality.

    Contador's "victory" by 38 seconds was already dirty -- that is, if you're an Andy Schleck fan like I am.

    Tainted meat? Can't wait to see the science behind that.

    Upon further review, it does seem plausible that he was either set up or inadvertently ingested it...


    Why take such an obvious drug?

    Didn't he win by pretty much the exact time he picked up when Schleck fell?

    Tyler Hamilton's vanishing twin thinks this is ridiculous.

    If the frogs don't strip him of the title, it's complete horseshit. Although we know Floyd was on the juice, they jumped all over him from the start even before a B sample was tested. Contador has had both A and B tested with the same results. According to some reports, there is no provision for an allowable amount. It's either there or not.

    I far more pissed that he attacked Schleck when he had the mechanical than this. I know they are all on something. I accept it. The only people who are every truly shocked and outraged are the ones who follow cycling once a year for the last decade.

    It sounds like he has a good case to me.

    Until they bust Lance, I don't want to hear about it.

    Yep. Exact.


    You think ALL of them are still on something? Really?

    And as for this case, stories today indicate a trace of a very obvious drug -- a drug often used by cattle ranchers to pump up their herd -- was found the day after Contador ate a steak. Unless he's found with some other more high-tech substance, I'm willing to give him a pass. And I can't stand the prick.
