I just can’t believe it is all happening yet again this year.  First Beltran flees from the testers, and then drops out.

An now, stage 6 winner, and leader in the KOM jersey race, Ricardo Ricco, has popped positive following his win.  He’s out, arrested, and goodbye to Saunier Duval as well.  Who’s next?  Evans, Valverde?

Still watching, but geez, this was the year to take the Tour back.

I’m so surprised that racers still think they can get away with it, and I think it’s pretty clear that there are still quite a few teams that are at least looking the other direction. Ricco has looked so crazy strong over the last few days, particularly on the stage he took. Surely not every great ride is drug inspired?

I’m loving that Garmin-Chipotle and Columbia are both doing so well since they’re (fingers crossed) so committed to clean riding.

Yeah, I’m hopeful about them. I know they are both using a lot of up front testing of their riders, which is good and looks like the way to go to help ease everyone’s fears.

Great finish today. The last 3km were extremely exciting. So far today’s winner (trying not to spoil in case anyone’s waiting for the replay) has been clean, and hopefully that won’t change.
