Mayo tests positive for EPO

I left for a minute to go around the corner and buy a soda. And I come back to this:

Iban Mayo tested positive for EPO on the Tour de France’s rest day, July 24, it was announced Monday night. His team Saunier Duval was informed of the positive test by the UCI and immediately suspended the rider.

I can’t turn by back on these guys for a minute!

(update: I can’t wait to hear what David Millar has to say about this one.)

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. I say from now on they only give out awards like Mr. Congeniality and most photogenic at the tour and everyone just gets a participation ribbon at the end.

    Pro cycling is just a joke now.

  2. Good call. Maybe a patch like the just finished a metric century. How about everyone has to ride aerobars the whole time and Vs. loses the coverage to Springer.

    After the race we could get a bunch of them skinny bitches in their tap dancing shoes swinging at each other. At the end they could bring out Phil’s sister and she could tell the public how she’s had the “Discovery Train”.

    Fuck – I’m onto something here!!!

  3. That would be pretty fun to see Dan. Jerry is some good stuff, I was actually on the show a couple months ago.

  4. observations from the final day of this year’s Tour.

    Nice of Mr. A to point out on Nat. TV that Contador used to race for ONCE and Liberty, with that saint of clean cycling, Manolo Saiz.

    Notice how on the podium, Evans looked around 100 lbs stronger than the two Disco-bots that beat him?

    Interesting how after Chicken got the boot, all the Disco interviews maintained that he was ‘the strongest man on the mountains’, while every other racer from Wiggins to Tomke were screaming foul…

    EggZactly!!!

    Fish-E knows how to analyze the between the lines meaning.

    What Game Play?

    All you have to do is listen. The clean riders are fucking pissed off that the dirty riders are winning, and they say it lightly or loudly. The dirty riders are complimentary of the efforts of the dirty riders who beat them.

    Levi was SO deferential to Rasmussen. Miss four drug tests? Who cares, he was “strongest man in the mountains”.

    Hey Levi; What Game Play?

  6. You know this is no surprise. What is a surprise is that someone at Scott thought running an ad campaign about Iban Mayo having a carbon addiction was a smart move. Carbon. So what’s they’re calling these days.

  7. From where I sit judging from his results I guess Mayo wasn’t taking enough shit, wasn’t taking enough shit, or was taking enough of the right shit at the wrong time.

    All of which make him a dumb shit.
