Huge doping news in the world of sport

This year's Tour de France was destined to be unpredictable with the retirement of Lance Armstrong. The tour, which starts tomorrow, just got even more unpredictable. All of the experts were saying that the odds were in favor of either recent Giro d'Italia winner Ivan Basso of Italy or Armstrong's chief rival and 1997 Tour winner Jan Ulrich of Germany. Both Basso and Ulrich have been suspended after being named in a huge doping investigation in Spain. Forty-eight other riders were named as well.

This certainly makes it more likely that the yellow jersey might stay in American hands.

Update: This headline is hilarious.

  • This is like if it was announced at the beginning of the baseball season that the Yankees and Red Sox would not be playing. Even bigger actually.

  • Actually it would be like if in 2005 Shaq had retired and Dirk, Duncan, Nash, and several Pistons were suspended for the season.

  • can you imagine if an America does win this year they wont have the doping charge to level at them. my guess anyone who was doping got caught in spain. What will the french press do if they can say the American was cheating?
