So how was it? Get a good view of Cav's 5th win of this Tour?

Superb, got there about 10ish, already getting busy. Got a spot right on the barrier at the Roosevelt/Champs junction, about 300 yards from the finish, couldn't get nearer, all ticketed seating. Stood many long hours, entertained by the publicity caravan, fantastic sight, the speed of the riders has to be seen to be believed, rounded off with yet another Cavendish sprinting masterclass.
Cool! I'll have to watch Le Tour live at least once in my lifetime.
What a surprise...


The brand name says it all.

According to reports the amount is 400 times lower than would normally constitute an offence, 400 times seems a seriously small amount but only time will tell, great shame if true.

Yeah I saw that too. I don't know enough about the substance to know if its common at all. I doubt he would have been suspended if it wasn't serious. Shame for the sport for sure. Never been a huge Contador fan, seems to disregard all cycling etiquite(sp?). Shame to see this happen to anyone but it must feel like karmic revenge for Shleck.
i just discovered this thread.
didn't know there were so many cycling fans in the zone
It's a small amount. Smaller than the normal offense amount as has been pointed out. And you can get this amount from food. I don't think there is anything to it. Contador is still the winner IMO.

That was a shame. If not for that dropped chain Shleck may have one. He may win next year.
