Cycling News has a piece about irregularities in testing the Astana team, led by Lance Armstrong, er Alberto Contador. Whatever. The French anti-doping agency has warned the UCI “to treat all teams the same” after testing of Astana was delayed last Saturday. Interesting side note: The French don’t really trust the UCI to conduct doping tests impartially and “professionally.” My position continues to be that a completely independent, non-cycling organization needs to conduct the testing, monitored by independent physicians and scientists as well as aggressive, investigative media. Otherwise we’re all just whistling in the dark, are we not?
Thanks to BikePure.org for the tweet on this.
