Tour de “Farce”

i have a tremendous amount of respect for the individuals who participate in the Tour De France…
please don't misunderstand that…
however, it just seems to me that this race is quickly becoming just a laughing matter…
a game of guessing who will be the next rider to test positive for some stimulant is just overwhelming…

it appeared that most of the issues would be resolved and a relatively quiet race was proceeding to a climactic finish this year on Sunday…
then late yesterday, the news broke of epic proportions…


Leader Rasmussen Out of Tour De France

race officials didn't remove him, his Rabobank team removed him after he tested positive for a "banned blood transfusion"…
obviously I don't know a whole lot about cycling, but a blood transfusion???
during the race???
wouldn't that be just a wee bit difficult to pull off w/out someone noticing???

anyways, this once glorious, and still, to me, the most grueling event in sports, is quickly becoming a joke…
just like the nation that hosts it…
