I just thought that JLLB's name for the event was funny, that's all.

I have no idea who did it, but he obviously doesn't think that sport is yet clean. I would say it is tragi comical. This sport was ruined for me after several doping fiascos. Surely there are clean guys but frankly I turn my TV to another channel when they start showing Tour de France.

RE: General Doping/PEDs Discussion
Tour De France is still a disgrace. Here's a good article about Chris Froome.

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/cycling/33587176

"As mentioned last week, some have never believed in his 2011 transformation from peripheral squad member, with no real form and a contract set to expire, to an all-rounder who would have won the Vuelta a Espana had he not been riding in support of Bradley Wiggins. His performances since have only fuelled the conspiracy theories, and the 2013 Tour champion has arguably been scrutinised more than any other sportsman over the past four years. Some of this is entirely legitimate, given cycling's past and the fact a great many champions have assured us of their propriety only to later be rumbled as cheats - Jalabert and Rasmussen, for example. A degree of scepticism is as sensible at the Tour as travel wash and sunscreen. It should also be added that Froome and Team Sky have not always helped themselves by occasionally straying from the team's noble founding sentiments, in particular the well-documented "zero tolerance" approach to hiring riders or staff with links to doping, or the promise not to use sick notes for medicine so that riders can race."

Let's just frame it as "Doping is still rife in cycling".

^I don't even bother watching that sport anymore. I used to be in awe of Indurain and Delgado, but I guess those guys were dopers too. It's too depressing!

Yes, 100% And though they haven't named who this is it's quite possibly him. Also, the fact that he lead the pack on the mountain stage when he's historically never been a climber and shot out miles in front of everyone else and the commentators just laughed on tv. They're not stupid.
