Liege-Bastogne-Liege Fallout

La Doyenne wasn't an edge of your seat type of race, but the fallout afterwards made up for it.

add kilometers to the total amount of distance covered in the time trial in this year's Tour, but they just added an additional 300 meters to the opening prologue. That translates to Andy losing an additional 20 seconds just there!

I've said it before, but Cadel Evans is my strong favorite to repeat and Levi Leipheimer or Bradley Wiggins are also strong choices. Call me crazy, but that's what my Magic 8-Ball has been telling me these past couple of months.

Just as I was wrapping up my column it looks like a ghost from Alberto Contador's past has come back to haunt him. A former masseur has testified that Contador was injected with insulin during the 2005 Tour de France. That is a big no-no. Of course Contador's lawyers have denied these accusations.

At this point we don't know if this will affect Contador's current ban or what, but it looks like the Spanish doping saga has resurrected like a zombie. When are we finally going to cut the head off of this thing and bury it?
