Le Tour 2007
That’s it for the 2007 chaos tour. Looking at the time distributions makes everybody above the median quite suspicious … more doping cases to come – maybe including A.C.
Although many people claim little interest in the tour after the many doping cases, this is all the more a reason to check whether we will find a structural change of the 2007 race compared to the races of the years 2006 and 2005.
