See, here's what I have a problem with. Not only is he on sanctions but 8 of the top 10 riders during his streak are also sanctioned? So where's the problem? So a bunch of juiced up bike riders can't beat a guy who is also juiced up. Sounds like a pretty even field to me! I'd bet you that out of the field of 200 riders (this years field) that 160 of them are juicing.
This is clearly a sport that is taking itself way to damn serious. I'd much rather watch golf or tennis than cycling any day. If I want to see a guy ride a bike, I will go to the fucking park and watch people do it there or even better, get off my ass and ride a bike myself.

I don't believe Junior was sandbagging, as I'd tend to believe he more than likely was had he run at the end of the lead pack all day. He'd have to have been CRAZY to sit around riding 20th all day when the "big one" is a-comin'.
