And It's Not Just Because Of The Drug References

VeloNews' Patrick O'Grady had a column today bemoaning the state of cycling in general after today's breaking doping scandal. The whole thing is worth a read, but this excerpt evokes Hunter S. Thompson at his best:

Same goes for cycling. It's not enough that Joe Pro be able to climb La Toussuire faster than we mere mortals - he has to do it in the big ring, after the Col du Galibier, the Col de la Croix de Fer and the Col du Mollard, with three broken bones, a cerebral aneurysm and a bunch of fellow medical mutants chasing him like he stole their stashes.
