    I for one am skeptical that Puerto will continue to be a cloud over him enough for ASO to want to pull him out, but we'll see.

    Without new facts or big clues ASO will never pull him (or an other) out.

    How can you be so sure about that poulidor? If it gets as bad as last year, where everyone wanted Rasmussen gone, I doubt ASO will ignore it.

    But I don't think it will get that bad, especially not if he doesn't even get the yellow jersey.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. He wasn't kicked out because he lied to the team about his whereabouts. He was kicked out because he lied to the vampires about his whereabouts, apparently without knowledge of the team.

    You see, it is the responsibility of the rider to tell the vampires where he is at any given time. The team is out of the loop of that one. A rider can tell the team one thing, the vampires another thing without anyone the wiser.

    We now know more about this than what an article dated 07/26/07 could have revealed.

    That is the revelation of Rassmussen's missing test that forced his team to retire him.
    In a similar case Valpiti or an other rider will be barred too. But there is few news about Puerto...

    I didn't say it was the real reason. I said it was the reason they gave.

    I still don't see how you can be so sure. It could still cause trouble even if there is nothing new. Valverde getting in the yellow jersey might bring more attention to what there is.

    Was the 6000 page Puerto dossier ever leaked to the press by the way? There could be some pretty incriminating stuff in there. I think it was because of that dossier that the UCI went after Valverde last year.
