July 17, 2008

Holy Crap. Overnight the entire complexion of the 2008 Tour de France changed. Stage winner Ricardo Ricco tested positive for Cera, a form of EPO, after stage 6.

The Saunier Duval rider was then suspended by his team. And then the team withdrew from the Tour.

An entire team departs!

Saunier Duval is no longer in the Race.

This will affect standings. This will affect perception.

What’s going on?
