Somewhat later than expected, the Langster rolled it’s way through 1000 miles on the way home this afternoon. If it hadn’t been for the shit weather it would have managed it several months ago.
The latest confirmed cheat is Iban Mayo who tested positive for EPO on the last rest day of the tour.
The sky seems to have turned a strange blue colour, and there isn’t any wet stuff falling from it. What’s going on?
Plenty of practice this morning, followed by the assessment this afternoon, and after four days I’m now a qualified first aider. A few of us went to the pub afterwards and as a consequence I’m now slightly pissed.
Somewhat inevitably, Rasmussen has been handed his P45 by the Rabobank team and is out of the tour. Whilst they’ve not yet caught him actually doping, that appears to be because he spends most of his time hiding so they can’t actually test him.
Today was mainly spent covering CPR and the recovery position, along with a few other major ailments.
I will be selling a range of “Do Not Resuscitate” badges to people who would prefer me not to go anywhere near them.
Yesterday it was Astana, today it’s Cofidis who’ve left following Cristian Moreni testing positive for Testosterone.
There’s no point watching it any more, the cocks keep ruining it by cheating, then getting caught.
I had a good ride tonight without the aid of any illegal substances. I didn’t even partake of whiskey and Tangfastics mid-ride.
More serious stuff today, including shock, major burns, severe bleeding etc. We finished off with a quick demonstration of the recovery position.
