It was one of the most doped, up to a point. Contador, Armstrong, the Schlecks and Kloden were clearly all cooking, probably Nibali and Kreuziger too. Apart from that it's a weird race- Casar and Le Mevel top 10, even Hincapie cracks the top 20. But to hang at the pointy end of that race was to hang with some of the finest dopers ever.Justinr said:Just a slight aside, why do you say the 2009 TdF was the most doped up? Why more so than 2005 or 06 or 07 (or any other recent year).
As an aside of my own, I'd love to know from Vaughters how Vande Velde got so good by stopping doping.
