Tour de Nada

There's a bicycle race going on in France right now, I assume, but don't ask me about it. I gave up on pro cycling this year. After following the sport daily since 2000, I quit cold turkey on January 1, 2010. I'd like to say it was a principled stand against doping or something like that, but really I just decided it was a waste of my time and energy to read obsessively.

The only article I've read about pro cycling this year was about Floyd Landis' allegations of widespread doping. For what it's worth, I think he's probably telling the truth this time. I lost all faith in clean cycling after the Tyler Hamilton affair.
