Today in "Sport," as the BBC refers to their sportS pages, victory was revoked from the 1996 winner of the Tour de France, Dane Bjarne Riis, after he confessed to doping. The organization put it this way: "We consider philosophically that he can no longer claim to have won." He had been using EPOs for about 5 years, including during his 96 win. So the UCI urged him "to return his yellow jersey, the symbol of his victory."
To which Riis responded, "My jersey's at home in a cardboard box. They are welcome to come and get it."
That's balls, people.
What's my take? Cyclists should just confront reality that all cyclists will dope if some do, and start their own Tour de France with a level playing field of doping cyclists. It could be some kind of x-treme off-shoot that harnesses their enhanced performance abilities for ultra-fast races, finishing the entire Tour in a week, instead of the long and boring month it usually takes every summer.
