Credit to Bush43 for the title of this one. I can’t come up with shit like that, I’m a dumb ass.
Like you don’t know that already.
German authorities said Tuesday they have received documents from doping expert Werner Franke which he claims show Tour de France winner Alberto Contador was involved in doping.
Franke said he has documents from last year’s Operation Puerto doping investigation in Spain which show that Contador, a Spaniard who won the doping-marred Tour on Sunday, had taken HMG-Lepori as a testosterone booster and an asthma product called TGN.
I’ll tell ya this much, I’m getting sick and tired of buying up these domain names and making “I believe” pages for all these dopers.
The first one was Funny Ha Ha!
The second was Funny Oh No!
Now it’s just sad.
If I could Photoshop anything worth a damn I’d go with a pic of Contador jumping the shark.
I believe it’s over.
“We can confirm we have received the documents, and they will be incorporated into procedures of the district attorney’s office,” Christian Brockert, spokesman for Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office, told The Associated Press.
Brockert said the federal office will meet with the district attorney’s office deemed to be responsible and assess the documents.
Contador, who rides for the Discovery Channel team, missed the 2006 Tour when his former team, Liberty, was disqualified because he and four other riders – plus the team director and doctor – were allegedly linked to Operation Puerto.
What is it with Discovery signing guys with black marks next to their name? Maybe they’ll get some convicted felons on the squad next year and give us something to cheer for.
Interesting quote from the same article:
Copies of the Operation Puerto investigation have surfaced so often in Germany that at one point a Web site – unrelated to any legal body – ran excerpts translated into German.
If anyone out can read/write/translate German and can find those pages (I’ve tried, but I could be looking at a recipe for chocolate chip cookies for all know) and feels like helping out, I’ll post it on Drunkcyclist.
Think of it as a learning experience.
For all of us.
