    Cycling is the dirtiest sport in the world I guess. :(

    He failed the drug test after the stage that he made that great comeback.

    If this is true, he failed a "Dope Test" in more ways than one...

    Of course, he was accused of having high levels of testosterone which the body can produce. It is also used to hide doping, so we will see...

    I think the bigger problem here is that the testosterone level is being measured using French men as the accepted standard...

    This is the problem I have with the Tour de France drug testing. Are they using accepted testing standards??

    I just find it hard to imagine that after all the scandals, suspensions, and false accusations that these riders still would be doping. It just seems like minimal chance of a payoff is totally outweighed by the huge risk of getting caught.

    When they're testing only for levels of testosterone... it makes it seem like the only way you can have high levels of testosterone (measured by normal levels of French men:lmao2:), is to be doping.
