Vino fails a drug test!

Holy crap, I'm stunned here. Article on ESPN said he tested positive for a blood transfusion and the whole team Astana has quit the race.

That's really bad for cycling. Thats the last thing needed now. I wonder how they test for that anyway.

It seems as if every rider has tested positive or at least been associated with doping in some way. Part of it is the fact that cyclists are the most scrutinized athletes in the World. If the testing that cyclist recieve was peformed in other sports we would see the same dilemma. But it sure looks bad.

I don't think anyone's been clean since the Lemond era...maybe longer.

I want to sign whoevers blood was in Vino.  The Tour must go on!   I think this is more embarassing than being caught piddling yourself. The quest for Glory is so strong! We have our Glory battles here, some are accused of sandbagging, some will cut the course, some will ride dirty but I don't think any of us would play with our blood  cells or put blood from someone else in our body to get the extra advantage. Wait till our race season starts and we have our own 'Glory'  infidelities. Who among us will fall to the temptation of the all powerful Glory.

Don't be surprised if you find out hockey has dopers also, the competition is fierce and people will use roids to get an edge.
