    Check out how riders from the 8 non-AIGCP teams (T-Mobile, Ag2R Prevoyance, Gerolsteiner, Credit Agricole, Bouygues Telecom, Agritubel, Cofidis, and La Francaise des Jeux) do in the GC or on difficult mountain stages. Makes me think.

    Its says a lot that CSC the 'clean' team aren't on this list. They're anti -doping programme is a load of crap, if they were all clean why would they be the most outspoken against signing the riders agreement?

    i understand the objections to the riders agreement. doping is a systemic problem in cycling. why should the riders be soley accountable? that agreement blows. and no, by saying that does not mean i am a proponant of doping.

    There's only one person from those teams in the top 35 GC.

    Good one. It's absolutely telling that those under longitudinal testing (aside from CSC) have results that are in the crapper.

    It also goes to show that the French were right about cycling at two speeds, and that it is clear that undoped (or less doped) riders cannot compete with those who are jacked all the way.
