Bunch a Bike-Ridin' Dopers

Dear gawd, the worst news I could possibly hear one day before the start of the Tour is that Jan and Ivan are out of the race due to doping allegations, along with possibly 50 other implicated riders.

Doping has always been an issue in cycling. There have been a fair share of true violators. But there have also been plenty of aggregiously false doping allegations perpetrated by the very people whose job it is to protect the sport from this BS.

If the investigation into these Spanish docs and their clients has been going on for 6 months, why are we suddenly banning riders the day before the Prologue? It stinks of sensationalism.

If Jan, Ivan, and company did dope, well, I guess they'll get what they deserve. Even if vindicated though, at this point the damage has been done. What a shame.
