I see on cyclingnews this morning that Valverde is not welcome at the Tour according to Prudhomme.The Tour has 60kms of racing in Italy and Valverde is banned in Italy, so his Team said they would race him until they get to Italy then withdraw him. But the Tour have said no.... :thumbsup:

Is it just me or does this report sound a bit fishy...

Rotten eggs affect Dekker's championships ride
By:Cyclingnews
Published:June 30

Last Sunday's Dutch national championship road race wasn't the most enjoyable experience for Silence-Lotto's Thomas Dekker, with rotten eggs the possible cause of a gastric upset.

Sporza reports that Dekker was vomiting during the race, although the Silence-Lotto team declared on its website that the Dutchman had recovered and his participation at the Tour de France has not been jeopardised.

"The reason is probably that he has eaten less-than-fresh eggs," the statement read. "On Sunday Thomas was already fit as a fiddle. On Monday he is now fit again.

"Meanwhile, Thomas is at home again in Italy before he travels down to Monaco on Wednesday. He will be without problems at the start of his Tour appearance," it added

Does EPO come with a Dutch racing licence or something?

So Who's it going to be????

"There could be four to seven more doping cases announced before the start of the Tour de France Saturday, the French sports publication L'Equipe reported on Thursday. Those cases will not be biological passport cases but stem from positive controls at this year's Tour de Romandie and the Tour de Suisse, according to the French newspaper, which is owned by the Tour organiser ASO.

The UCI would not confirm that information, but also did not deny it. "I cannot confirm that there will be further riders closed out from the Tour because of doping after the Dekker case," UCI spokesman Enrico Carpani told the German press agency dpa.

Dekker was charged earlier this week with having a positive control for EPO, in a re-tested sample. The UCI further said that the Dutch rider was caught under the bio-passport programme due to irregular blood values."
