If you actually followed cycling and where not just forced to write some moronic article once a year on the subject you would know that Team Slipstream has one of the most aggressive testing programs in the sport. Christian Vande Velde has always been a good rider, but has always worked for others in the sport, yet has finished in the top 25 in the Tour.

But facts have no basis in mainstream journalism. Selling newspapers is the #1 priority...

I agree. Christian seems to be straightforward. His quote in the article even tries to get this guy to listen. And today, he was close to the leaders at the end. Cycling isn't like other sports where 30 is the cut off for production.

I was really annoyed that our local paper's headline after the last stage was about doping and not Sastre.
