Sending a clear message...

Whatever illusions certain fools in the pro peleton may have had should well be erased by now. The constant bickering between the UCI, ASO, and the Pro-Tour teams aside - a clear message has been sent: you cannot use performance enhancing drugs and participate in the Tour de France.

Today's ejection of climbing "phenom" Riccardo Ricco - after two stage wins in the tour and some amazing climbing performances in this year's Giro d'Italia: all now under question - marks the third rider within the first half of the current tour to be caught and expelled for EPO use. Ricco's team, Saunier-Duval/Scott followed suit and removed themselves from the race voluntarilly (for reasons yet to be known as I write this).

Cyclist meets driver with a twist
