Alberto Contador All But Clinches Tour de France In Wild 17th Stage

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

If you read the Tour de France post from yesterday you know we're not exactly big fans of Spain's Alberto Contador. Well, sadly, despite the fact that second-place rider Andy Schleck won the 17th stage, he failed to gain any time on Contador with just three stages remaining. Schleck's only chance ...

So Is Alberto Contador Just A Jerk, Or What?

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Alberto Contador is currently wearing the Yellow Jersey at the Tour de France, looking for his third championship. Sounds pretty sweet right?

Two more riders in the Tour de France are being surrounded by controversy regarding performance-enhancing substances and blood testing. Luckily, this time it's not Americans that are the target of new ...

Wow, Didn’t See That Coming

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

So the Floyd Landis hearing took an insane twist on Thursday, one that we did not see coming. After several days of testimony by French lab-type-guys, three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond took the stand. First we wondered what the hell Greg LeMond has to do with anything here, ...
