Well, it was just a matter of time before another rider in Lance Armstrong's orbit gets caught testing positive for blood doping.
Yep - Manuel Beltran, who rode with Saint Lance on U.S. Postal and Discovery, has been tossed from this year's Tour de France for testing positive for EPO.
- Basso (Lance tried to hire him on Discovery a few years ago)
- Vinokourov (kicked out last year for doping. He and Lance went to the same Italian blood doping doctor).
All of the above are disgraced riders.
I know Lance has never tested positive. I suppose we shouldn't judge someone by the company they keep. Then again, once Lance is done with these people, he tosses them aside anyway, so one could argue that he doesn't keep company with them anymore.
Hey - has anyone tested Kate Hudson's urine recently?
