The TdF got its second black eye of this year's race today: Michael Rasmussen was given his walking papers by Rabobank for lying on his travel diary.
Actually, it was yesterday, but today's the first stage after it was announced.
Hopefully this will be the last one of the tour. It was shaping up to be a good one, but, like last year with Landis' doping allegations, Rasmussen proved to be too fast for his own good and his (at this time alleged) illegal activities have caught up with him.
Oh well, at least there's always the Bonds Home Run Circus going on for those interested in following steroid-free activities.
