To Hell With Them All

I will never again follow professional cycling. I more or less swore off of it after the Floyd Landis debacle last year, and have reaffirmed my commitment to stop caring as the doping scandals have multiplied this season.

They all cheat, they're all dirty.

Now, if cycling lifted the ban on all illegal substances and doping practices tomorrow, I'd be fine with that. On the flip side, if they increased the doping penalty to a lifetime ban, I'd support that, too. One way or the other. What's going on now is not working, and nobody benefits from it.

I suspect this will be the first of very many years that I don't follow the Tour de France or any other European pro race at all. Screw 'em.
