    Want to venture a guess on how many more before July 7th? I would think at least 4-5 more.

    I think this is nothing but a show on Milram's part. he will be allowed to race again, or should be.......... His "violation" and type of "violation" is easily explained. He will be riding before next week is over.

    "Look at us, we are co-operating with the drug lords., uuhhhhh , I mean the drug testing pact among teams"

    Hardly a serious bust. He'll ride the tour.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he would start at the Tour but I don't think it's a Milram show. As jhuskey said (I think he's right), there will be a couple more in the coming week. There are people with some stuff in their drawer and they want to harm a certain organisation, just like they did last year.

    Which drug cheat?

    Zabel?
    Petacchi?
    DiLuca?
    Manzoeni?
    Pharmstromng?
    Hamilton?
    Landis?
    Basso?
    Riis/CSC?
    T-Mobile?

    Be specific as to which dopers you root for.

    I'd love to see them all riding, but I'll still cheer for Cadel.
    Actually - maybe not Armstrong - he makes it all a bit boring.

    Yup I wouldn't be surprised to see Pettachi back for the Tour. With all this juggling I think they'll be more names to take off the team sheets though...
    Look out for the free Tour guide with the Guardian on Monday 2nd - has got an article by Millar in it - should be a good read

    With the Italians Alessandro Petacchi, Alberto Ongarato and Alessandro Cortinovis, the Australian Brett Lancaster, as well as the five German riders Erik Zabel, Ralf Grabsch, Marcel Sieberg, Christian Knees and Enrico Poitschke, Team MILRAM sends a well-adjusted selection to France.

    Erm. The thread is about Petacchi. Isn't it? And i'm thrilled you consider asthmatics et al as drug cheats, i'm sure they are too.

    Officially becomes a positive following the counteranalysis, if I am not mistaken.

    Normally (but what's normal these days..) a non-negative is either because it's unknown if substance in a probe is artificial or not or the athlete has a medical certificate but the measure of the substance is too high.
