The Birkie is coming up so most of us have skiing on the brain, but I just thought it was noteworthy that a cyclist was just declared the winner of a race that happened back in 2010. For me, the news came from this Yahoo article which discusses how Alberto Contador has been stripped of his 2010 Tour de France title, thus making Andy Schleck the winner.
The news gets only worse for Contador who has also been saddled with a two year ban.
Well, at least the grand jury decided not to continue to pursue Lance Armstrong. That decision seems especially strange in light of this Contador decision, especially because grand juries are known for finding people to be guilty no matter what the reality is.
Am I the only one who longs for the days of LeMond and Hinault?
