The last time I looked, any rider racing professional events has to adhere to drug testing.

So, is this a tricky statement or is the ASO reinventing the wheel now!

Well it's going to be interesting to see how the other riders react on Astana.

Levi Leipheimer was doing well with winning the Tour of California.

Alberto Contador won the Tour de France.

I don't see Alberto Contador willing to play second fiddle to Lance Armstrong.

...it would be interesting,but would never compare to the TdeF the Giro La Vuelta etc.The U.S. is a huge country but doesn't have the likes of the Pyrenees,Alps,Dolomites etc.Let's face it ,it would get boring after a while.

Gus, do you still remember our Rapport tour, from Johannesburg to Cape Town? It's 1600km and took about 2 weeks to complete. The Americans do things in a BIG way. How about building some mountains?

Just keep calm, let Lance compete. History will judge him. Any man with his pedigree who returns to pro cycling for his cause to make people aware of cancer, for me is a moral hero. Raymond7348

I am certain that Lance will be 'more transparent' than ever could be LNDD-now-dda (département des analyses) and its mentor, the AFLD...

more importantly, will TdF and FFC stay sanctioned/exiled from UCI? For how long, and what crisis will end this real cycling charade?

...I remember the Rapport whence the Great Sean Kelly emerged from.He was suspended for riding it and turned Pro,the rest is History.Also there was a Brilliant rider from Scotland who was also suspended,he stayed on in S.A. but disappeared from the scene a couple of years later.Gotta go have my daily shot of Geritol....Cheers!

I agree with you Gus. I have always and will continue loving Le Tour de France.

I do believe that Canada, South Africa, and the United State have the geographical make up for some exciting cycling events.

I heard about a tour in the USA trying to be put together last year but havent heard anything else about it....even if something like this happened it still would never be like the TDF.

Yup... you can't surpass 105 years (minus Wars) of French doping history... it's so... French... so mysterious, so 'coup d'état'-ish...

No race can ever rival le Tour... or Armstrong's defiant glory in victory... victories...

You're correct. We haven't heard anymore about this race.
