Why O Why did he miss these tests...if he takes them he is above suspicion !!!

Funniest thing is he is now being backed to win it by the tour organising committee.... but not the governing body... hmm, watch this space, there will be more fireworks before this story is over I can tell you.

Vinikourov...out

 

 

 

drugs cheat...booooo

 

 

http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/24072007/58/tour-de-france-cycling-rocked-new-drugs-shame.html

 

Alexandre Vinokourov has tested positive for illegal doping, and his Astana team have withdrawn from the Tour de France.

 

Astana revealed that their Kazakh leader failed a test after winning Saturday's time trial in Albi.

 

Vinokourov's blood sample was analysed at Châtenay-Malabry and reportedly showed two different types of red blood cells, showing the rider had received a transfusion shortly before the start of the stage.

No, his team withdrew.... but to have my cash back in my hills account today, he must have resigned from the race yesterday.

 

I'll think you'll find that if a team withdraws from the tour the riders can still race..... it's up to the individual to resign. Hence why some are still classified at today's start.
