Another Tour, Another Scandal.

Tour de France 2007: Vinokourov tests positive; Astana withdraws from Tour

Just when you thought that they'd all be making a move to clean up after last year's Operacion Puerto and Floyd Landis scandals, Alexandre Vinokourov tests positive and pulls down with him his team, the Tour de France and the sport of cycling.

It's just so disappointing that an exciting Tour is now marred with doping scandals. First, it's with Rasmussen not informing the UCI and his country's anti-doping body of his whereabouts for the required anti-doping tests, and now this.

If there's a silver lining to this dark cloud, then it has to be that now cheaters are getting caught. It doesn't do well in the image of the sport for now but it would help it in the long run.
