    id say thats a pretty unfair generalisation on all the clean cyclists, cause i can assure you there would be plenty, most even.....

    it just seems like a dodgy sport to me with all this drama going on you can't blame me for saying this. Im not much of a cycling fan but i do enjoy watching it when they have the 4 cyclists in like a relay form racing

    The Tour's first proper day in the mountains - when the race for Yellow really begins - is always a highlight of the sporting year.

    I think one of Australia's Tour riders is intending to ride in the Olympics. It's either Brad McGhee or Robbie McEwen, I think.

    If they are performance enhancing then I should imagine they are illegal.

    There will be no David Millar who has a heap of talent and is considered a future Tour winner, now his career is in ruins because he admitted to taking EPO.

    Road Cycling is awesome compared to the track stuff. There is nothing more then a hard climb and then a descent at speeds of over 55km/h (the fastest I have gone is at 57.3 km/h downhill).

    IMO I think Armstrong will win this year, he has a lot to prove to those who think he is past it and to get revenge on the writers who accused him off cheating.

    Iban Mayo stuffed his, too. And Tyler didn't go down on paved roads, though. Keep that to Paris-Roubaix.
