Question about all 189 riders giving blood sample and all are clean.
How is it that the tdf has test all 189 riders samples in the last 2-3 days?
and it takes a week to get a sample during the tour...for example landis sample after stage 17 was not know positive for 6-7 days?

During the arbitration we also learned that it took about 5 hours to run a 45 minute test. Hmmm. The unbiased scientists were sure that was a problem.
Should a guilty verdict come back there is definitely something amiss.
