Tour de FRANCE officials: Why don't you TEST ALL the bikers, prior to the race?? IDIOTS. Same goes for the TEAM LEADERS.

Tour de France Leader Michael Rasmussen Drops Out, AFP Reports

By Michael Sillup

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Tour de France leader Michael Rasmussen's Rabobank team pulled him out of the cycling race for breaking undisclosed rules, Agence France Presse reported.

Rasmussen, 33, who won today's stage in the Pyrenees, was dropped by Denmark's national team four days ago for not informing anti-doping officials of his whereabouts twice while training in Mexico this year. He said he made an administrative error and was cleared to race by Tour de France officials.

The Rabobank team hasn't decided whether it will continue in the race tomorrow, team spokesman Jacob Bergsma told AFP.

The Cofidis team exited the race today after one of its riders failed a doping test. The Astana team dropped out yesterday after its leader, pre-race favorite Alexander Vinokourov, failed a test for blood doping.

The race ends July 29 in Paris.
