I always look forward to la grande boucle, but I just can’t get into it this year. What were there, over 50 racers kicked off this year’s tour? So who’s left? Not Jan Ulrich. Not Basso. Okay, there’s Boonan (or however you spell his name), but then what?
Now, were I a conspiracy theorist, I would really be scratching my head as to why they finally decided to crack down this year, now that Armstrong is gone. But I’ll just chalk it up to coincidence.
