On the road on Stage 5

All 172 riders started this morning, so everyone is soldiering on, broken backs and all.

Giving us a chance to catch up on our reading....

"The doctor [Fuentes] at the centre of the Spanish doping investigation has defended himself by saying that the objective of the treatment he administered to sportsmen was to safeguard their health. . . . Although Fuentes said he used blood extraction techniques, he said he did not administer banned substances to his clients and said that the quantities of the blood booster erythropoietin (EPO) that were found in the raids were for family use."

Yeah, that's right. I keep a big jug of EPO in the fridge for my family, right next to the milk. And we enjoy routine blood extractions for our health. Don't you?
