what the...

ok, now the tour is really wide open... jan ullrich and ivan basso - arguably the 2 favorites for this year's tour - have both been suspended by their teams (t-mobile & CSC) after being implicated in the operation puerto doping scandal. i'm sure the americans (hincapie, landis, leipheimer, maybe even bobby julich) are feeling like their chances just got a little better but i think this might be the year for vinokourov if he can stay disciplined and ditch the crazy & pointless attacks that characterized his riding at t-mobile.

poor vino won't have a team around him though, maybe t-mobile will ride for him.

good idea... who t-mobile got left to ride for... with ullrich & sevilla out the best hope they've got is kloden, who hasn't been riding well this year

My pick is Landis.

What a mess though.

was this drug bust about clean up or getting some press?

in a tour without lance there must be less buzz

so
did they do this to create some buzz?
