Check out this article and let me know what you think.
Tour de Farce
Drug use in many sports is the elephant in the room. How about those financial ties between owners, sponsors, patrons, etc.? C'mon! NASCAR? Football? Baseball? Let's be real, just because I ride and race (occasionally) and love getting my ass kicked on hard group rides (though the last one I did was last year) does not mean "my" sport is any different than anyone else's. OK, maybe a bike race burns WAY less fuel and emits fewer pollutants than NASCAR, or even the 50,000 slobbering Patriots fans driving in whatever they drive in to the stadium, but we all still had to log the 2 1/2 hours of windshield time just to get spanked.
I digress, and my analysis is weak... I have been unable to ride hard for the past four weeks and my mind is paying the price.
How can I not have a link for this?
