It's about time all these riders stopped taking PED's.
It's slowing them down so much they can't compete with these clean teams.
43 Andy Schleck (Lux) Team Saxo Bank @ 3'-56"
Miles off the pace, today, having done a lot of the early donkey work for Spartacus.
Is he going to be doing the Tour spade work, so bro Frank can try to finish 5th or 6th, or is he playing dead, again?

Mellow Velo said:How can you have race, where the leader can lose almost 4 minutes, against the clock, but a climber hasn't the opportunity to take 30 seconds, anywhere?
I never knew there were so many flat roads in Switzerland.....
.....until this week.
jaylew said:So, obviously this one was organized for Cancellara for reasons already mentioned in this thread. The big question is are they going to continue to cater the event for Cancellara for the next few years? If so, they'll ruin what is usually one of the best stage races around.
Eldrack said:Total joke. FC will win todays TT and the overall. Not only have the mountain stages been easy but FC has been climbing suspiciously well. Would have expected him to have been dropped for at least 30 seconds on Crans Montana yesterday.
