Throw rocks at 'em

Alas, another one bites the dust... Ass wipe. Or rather, presumed ass wipe. It's unfortunate that in cycling the news leaks before the B sample is tested- although I can't for the life of me understand why it takes months to test a B sample, either.

I hate to say it, but I really couldn't care less about this years Tour. The best riders aren't there, and those who are there are still getting caught. This is the 3rd so far. Funny how there were no riders caught at the Giro...

At some point you have to question where pro cycling is going. Ricco's team didn't just pull him from the race, they pulled out of the race, and if rumours are true, have pulled the team from RACING. IE everyone is out, maybe for forever? Is this really what it's going to take?

Cheaters just plain suck. Big team cheaters, little team cheaters. Like the people who cut the course on marathons... (and boy do I have photos of people doing that... I may just get rich someday blackmailing the jerks.) Cheating is stealing. It takes away from those people who do things on the up and up, and it makes a mockery of sport. To have people, like Ricco, rub your face in it... stick their tongue out at you while they are cheating is just plain, I don't know, crazy? Sociopathic?

I think I'm going to finally get to watch 3:10 to Yuma. I just don't care who wins this dog and pony show.

Amen to that! 3:10 Yuma is a long movie, I think I fell asleep.

Why anyone cheats is beyond me....BUT the folks that cheat at local amateur events like TT is just well.. dumbfounding....

Cheating at the pro ranks.. well we have come to expect it.. What really toast my pop-tarts is when local amateurs cheat... Those are the ones we should ban from cycling..

I had been recording the Tour and watching it as I could. After rider number 2 was popped yesterday I cancelled the recordings and deleted the un-watched stuff. It is so sad that even after all of the poor media cycling got as a whole last year people still continue to cheat.
