    I say reluctantly, continue the Circus Race but Alberto Contador and the Discovery guys should not feel too good about winning. They should consider it a gift from Rabobank. The same goes for every rider who starts the race tomorrow who gets an automatic step up. To be honest I really don't care about the outcome of the remaining stages. What a mess!

    Shut it down. The dopers have completely ruined the sport's marquee event. There must be a clear, unequivocal, and startling consequences.

    The consequences should be so extreme that dopers understand that they are endangering not just their own careers by doping but the entire race and the whole sport. These guys must understand what they have wrought.

    Stop the Tour.

    IMO Contador is even more implicated then Ras. It will be an absolute digrace if he wins, after the puerto affair.

    Yes cancel this years tour. Let Boonen have the green jersey, and solar the polkadot. But what is the point in going on. Tour de farce.

    "What is the point in going on?" Because 100 other riders are still there, and have just spent two weeks killing themselves to get through the Pyrenees and finish!

    Just because fans have their panties in a bunch that the GC is all screwed up (and/or their favorite is now out, and/or another Disco rider might win) shouldn"t be a reason to scrap the work and livelihoods of the rest of the field. Everyone claims to be a true fan of cycling, but no one cares about the riders who aren't stars (perhaps even clean! maybe they're the heroes?)

    If you think it's a farce, don't watch, but don't penalize the rest of the Tour.
