News Flash: Astana barred from ASO events

Here we go! This is just getting stupid. So much for Alberto defending his title. We may NEVER see anybody defend a Tour win ever again. Armstrong was "accused" of doing just about everything during his Tour de France dominance but the thought of not letting him or his team race would have been blasphomy. Now, if your name (or even a code word they think might be a reference to you) is even remotely linked to anything remotely linked to something that might have to do with anything drug related, your career is over. It will be a wide-open race this year all right. With most of the top riders out for this reason and that reason, or for no real reason, we might have to do a little research to figure out who the riders are that end up fighting for the win.
