I wonder how many people suspended from the Tour, etc. because of Operacion Puerto will be cleared. I can’t really argue against cycling’s guilty until proven innocent approach, but there have already been several people implicated in the scandal that have been cleared. That list includes the five Asta riders who were booted, disqualifying Vino from competing in the Tour. If Basso is eventually cleared (as I’m hoping he will be), that means we lost a likely 1-2 in the Tour for no good reason.
