That's a lot of doped riders.
Notably, Kessler, who was clean yesterday, established his guilt with a
breakaway win today. Other notable guilties: Popovyvch, Savoldelli, and
Rubiera of Discovery; Cadel Evans (Davitamon-Lotto), and Bobby Julich
(CSC). This is by no means a complete list.
Oh, and for you haters and doubters that think this doesn't count as a flat
stage, six Cat 3 & 4 climbs do not a mountain stage make. This was a 48-strong
bunch finish five seconds behind Kessler, and Millar finished in that
But I'm sure you're all glad to know that Z-man is clean, along with Iban
Mayo. Iban is very, very clean.
Colophon: In association with Brian Lafferty, The Millar Line powered by
LIVEDRUNK is used to measure whether riders are clean or not. Since Millar
is clean, any non-sprinter who finishes ahead of him on a flat stage is
doping (all sprinters are clean).
When we get to the mountains, we will instead use a VAM "speed limit." I
believe the proposed line is VAM 1750. This will let us catch any
malingering KoM aspirants trying to hide by making themselves into GC
non-threats during the flat stages.
Why not use the "French line" instead? We know French riders are clean
too (which is another issue with the Millar line. Am I supposed to
believe that Beneteau dopes?). This French line also works in flat
stages and is less sensitive to crashes and hissy fits. Today the line
was set by
20 Cyril Dessel (Fra) AG2R-Prevoyance
saving guys as Leipheimer and Menchov.
I'd propose the 'patriot line' set by the rider who is the real deal, a
class act, and generally a great guy. Everybody knows nice guys only win
because they train very hard, so it's an infallible criterion. Nice guys
also speak English and not french.
True but nice guys have also been known to speak Dutch or even Flemish.
Not sure about the nice guy part, but Dutch does sound like a lot of
Guys guys guys: Everyone knows you can't trust anyone with a French name.
But what if france wins later today and goes on to win the WC. Surely that
would blitzkrieg the french line.
They know how to train, they just do it all wrong.
No, I'm one of those guys who creates reality while the realists sit on
Which is why I post to usenet so much,
Too bad Germany lost. We could have had the WW2 rematch. The blitzkrieg
vs. the Maginot Line.
The Guerre du Eclair vs. the Siegfried Line?

The Strudel Line, please...
