    This is stupid. It never stops.

    A former mountain bike racer claims that in 2002 Rasmussen tried to trick him into transporting doping blood for him. Read this:

    http://www.velonews.com/tour2007/news/articles/12851.0.html

    Now read that carefully. He's claiming that Rasmussen wanted him to take blood substitute in a shoebox?!

    And why now? Rasmussen's been pretty huge in the Tour since he almost made the podium in 2005. Why is this guy saying this 5 years after the fact and two years after Rasmussen's first KOM?

    I don't believe it.

    You somehow missed that a thread was started on this topic hours ago and now has 72 posts already.

    No, I didn't mean the guy reporting this against Rasmussen. I meant the "guy" in the more general sense, like "someone up there must really be looking out for me" kind of thing.

    Sorry for the vague wording. :)

    Personally... I think cow blood has its place. The night before my last club race, I ate a rare steak. Yes there was a bit of cow blood in the centre. I placed 6th.

    No, quite the opposite - someone out there really doesn't want to see the yellow jersey die of mad cow disease.
