Tour de France Doping Scandal Continues

A doping scandal will be shadowing the field today as bicycling’s Tour de France heads toward a Sunday finish in Paris.

Some experts are wondering if the wheels have come off the famed race for good. That’s because the race leader and likely winner is gone, sent home on July 25, 2007, under a cloud of doping suspicion.

Some French newspapers have already written the race’s obituary, saying it should be stopped after the bombshell announcement.
