Sadly, the Tour is not over as far as doping cases go. Mayo tested positive for EPO from a doping test performed on the second rest day, July 24.
I also read that all samples from the Tour will be analyzed with the next five days, so stay tuned for more fall out. My guess: Contador.

Interestingly, the Equipe paragraphs (2) remind us he was 'tested "non-negative" in Giro this year, but 'cleared by the UCI after supplementary analysis...'
Guess that means the 'system' worked? Of course l'Equipe, who knows before the UCI ANY A Sample positives, isn't ethical enough to tell us that 'supplementary analysis' means 'B Sample' confirmation, or what.........

Thanks for the info Navrflw. All the riders in the yellow jersey and any rider who wins a stage at the TDF are automatically tested for dopping. So far, Contador hasn't been reported with a dopping positive.
I'm surprised that the ASO allowed Iban Mayo into the TDF. But, than it was UCI president Pat McQuaid who was publically stating that he didn't want Rasmussin to win the TDF, yet he did nothing about pulling this rider out of the race.
Talk about double standards and unethical behavior. I have to agree with Chrissy Prudhommer that Patty McQuaid needs to step down from being the president of UCI.
