Cue 1000s of beef jokes. Doesn't detract from the fact it's a good thread title though. ;)

Good news. This story will keep us warm throughout the winter months. Except in Oz and hot places where, to be fair, they don't need the extra warmth.

We also have the sizzling hot TdU.

One thing I still can't understand. How is it possible to 'prove' the Clenbuterol came from contaminated meat?
Seriously, I think it's stupid that riders have to prove that the stuff they have in their bodies comes from a food source instead of a pill. In other sports the accusers have to prove it didn't.
I mean, I get that this is also difficult, and that the WADA and UCI have to fight against doping, but I still find it unfair and useless. Like the Chicken said: I'd rather let a few guilty guys walk than punish one innocent man.

In what sport where an athelete tests positive do the testers have to prove that the drug wasn't possibly taken accidentally.

I can't think of that ever happening.

I would agree that the presumption of innocence until proven guilty is an admirable ideal. However, they (the riders) know the rules and agree to abide by them. It is no different than if you or I are required to submit for drug testing for employment. We agree to do so, and we know that we will possibly be fired if something shows up. You don’t have the luxury of arguing that it came from contaminated meat or some such nonsense. You are handed your pink slip because you signed a form indicating you knew your rights and the consequences if you failed -- just like the riders. It may not be fair, but those are the rules. What I find disturbing is how long it takes to have these sanctions implemented and all the back dating rubbish. 2 years is 2 years, not 15 or 18 months – 24 months is two years!

Ok - 'mooo'ving us back to the spirit of the thread.

Obviously WADA have decided that Contadors claims are in fact 'bull', unless Contador can come up with some 'udder' evidence when his case is 'herd'.

Unless he can find the farmer, or someone else who is outstanding in their own field then he is going to be slaughtered by the press.

But there is no point crying over spilled milk.

nice work Maserati

Good old WADA interfering with us again because we make an effort to catch our dopers.

Why dont they FO out of it and start insisting that eg Champions League Football or tennis do ANY tests at all.

Contador is farked now I think. For a year at least anyway.

This should drop the average speed in the 2011 Tour quite a bit

Now we just need a TTT and Wiggo may have a chance of a podium, er Top 10 :)
