Not impossible. Sky News also reported last night that two small explosive devices was detonated along the route...... drug fiasco as well as a terror scare may cause the froggies to pre-empt and pull the plug. Maybe just have the last stage in Paris????????

Discovery and T-Mobile (SPONSORS) are not coming back next year....

Also Le Blanc (old TDF director) has called for the Tour to be shortened - saying they've created their own worst monstor - 3500kms over 21 days will result in doping.

A shorter, more realistic (to plebs like us) Tour may be on the cards.

What a shame !!!!

I wonder if that French Lab's gonna be involved with the Rugby World Cup. And whether they'll call for that to be stopped if they find dopers!

I think Andrew McLean has put it in very good in perspective after one of the stages:  he said its also illegal to rob banks, but still people still rob banks...

I agree, but we're at the point where the implication is that everyone leaving a bank has just robbed it.

Gourette - One French newspaper proclaimed the doping-tainted Tour de France "dead" on Thursday and urged organisers to cancel the event' date=' a day after race leader Michael Rasmussen was ousted by his team.

 

Read the rest on news 24

Sorry RABUBI - unintenional hijack -> back to your topic..

 

Quite ironic that some froggies are wanting to stop the race, would have thought that they would be waving the TDF flag instead and the rest of the world would be calling it quits?
