Doping Scandal Rocks Tour De France
Imagine if the Yankees, Red Sox and Mets were kicked out of the post season just as they were gearing up to fight for a slot on the World Series. That's what is happening in the world of cycling, where three top racers have been eliminated due to a doping scandal. Don't think cyclists are bigger cheaters than other professional athletes. Nope, cycling is merely the one sport behaving responsibly and tackling this problem aggressively. If baseball, football and other US sports took action, we'd be rocked by similar revelations of cheating for years to come. Don't hold your breath.
