Hi Rob

I am a great cycling fan and will admit that unless you accept that the sport is (and pretty much always has been) affected by doping episodes like this.

When Landis made his 'amazing comeback' clawing back 8 minutes on Pereiro in the alps I was thinking to myself "they must have got the dosages right today". Meanwhile the commentators were saying "what an amazing feat of endurance and determination".

Who were they trying to kid? we have been here before, remember Hamilton's "amazing effort" to win that stage with a broken collarbone???

Yes, we have indeed been here before, all too often. That's why I lost interest in this year's Tour before it started when Ullrich, Basso et al were ejected.
