Oh my god. Not again. The sport doesn't need this...not now.
The complete Astana Team has quit the Tour.
The testing is pretty straight forward. Explanations are all over the internet as to the details of the analysis.
Wow. How does one test positive for a blood transfusion? What is it they labs look for? Blood type must be the same for the person to receive an infusion...so what is the signal that the rider got some other blood?
You gotta wonder how bad T and F was the past 15 years. In fact, you gotta wonder how bad T and F still is. If you think people running the roads, especially marathons, aren't doping on similar levels, then you're nuts.

I have to admit I was a big fan of cycling but I am beyond tired of new doping allegations that seem to pop up on a weekly basis in the sport of cycling. If it isnt a current riding being popped it is some old rider confessing his sins years later.
The sport is seriously f***ed. I am not sure how it can survive with continued allegations like this. I mean what the hell is wrong with these guys and how do they not think they are going to get caught. Like the previous poster I am pretty much over cycling.
All the ones cheating who haven't been caught aren't really as inept, are they?
And why are they so inept at cheating?
