The Tour de France is a joke

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

The headline’s just in case you didn’t already know that. Yesterday, just to make the tour a bit more ridiculous, the leader of the event, Michael Rasmussen, was removed from the race by his own sponsors. This actually came after he won yesterday’s stage and looked like he was set to take it all home when the end comes on Sunday.

Officially, it was stated that Rasmussen had violated the team’s internal rules, but if you don’t think this was about doping, you are quite the naive person. In the past two days, two of the riders towards the top of the rankings have been outted. Unless something is done about this horrendous doping trend that’s been defiling this sport, it should be just flat out put down.
