STOP FUCKING CHEATING. This means YOU.

This came out today:

http://trustbut.blogspot.com/2007/07/vino-positive.html

It says a well-respected rider in the Tour de France has tested positive for a blood transfusion - something which is totally and utterly against the rules.

There has been a lot said about doping in the sport of cycling in recent months - most of it due to similar news regarding last year's winner, Floyd Landis.

At this point in the story - I DON'T FUCKING CARE IF HE DID OR DIDN'T.

The real cheaters here are the press and the laboratory.

The same French sports paper which leaked the Floyd Landis story (which got its "dope" from the same French laboratory involved here) has leaked this story BEFORE the results have been confirmed.

It's against the International Cycling Union's rules to disclose the results of any drug test before it is confirmed by a 2nd, backup test.

If cyclists are going to be banned for not following the rules, then this laboratory should be banned for exactly the same reasons. Period. End of story.
