Cofidis team out of Tour

Holy shit.

Cofidis confirmed Wednesday that its entire team will leave the Tour de France after rider Cristian Moreni tested positive for testosterone after last week’s 11th stage.

…Cofidis officials, announced they will forgo their right to ask for analysis of a ‘B’ sample, also accepted the Tour’s “invitation” to withdraw from the race, becoming the second team in 24 hours to exit France’s national tour.

The Tour is dead,
Long live the Tour.

You want to know who I feel sorry for?

Bradley Wiggins.

It’s hard not to like that guy. Sure, has three and a half hours back (3.24.29 actually). But he was still there, clawing his way towards Paris. Read this about him: sport.guardian.co.uk

And now he’s going home because of his teammate.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. M’s right. Moreni should get the choice of a suspension, or ten minutes out back behind the team bus.

  2. other than finishing hours in arrears of the leaders of every stage, what was Cofidis doing at le Tour anyway? I’d think they’d be relieved to go home…
