    Yet another example of the double standard on drug use. Alcohol, and caffeine. The socially accepted drugs, Marijuana & testosterone the band drugs… God forbid that a racer ride while high.

    In reading Velonation, DK Sporten, Cyclingnews , etc., Schleck says out until 1 a.m. and 2 beers. O’Grady says 2 beers but says he was out on the night of the time trial, (??? What? that is not even the day in question???). Bjarne Riis, team owner, says more than 2 drinks and possibly out until 5:00 a.m. Trey Greenwood (Saxo) says it as a full-on drinking spree and in at 5:30. Spanish newspapers have stories about the two going out multiple nights clubbing while in Spain possibly with Cancellara. Any way you look at it, there is more to the story than anyone is telling.
