Tour de France charges Lance Armstrong

  Wow check out the timing on this headline in - NYDailyNews.com -"On eve of Tour de France, U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officially charges Lance Armstrong with doping violations". What a powerful way for the USADA (anti-dope war) to leverage its cause by using the fame from Lance Armstrong and the opening of the world renowned " Tour de France " to gain high profile media attention. This is much more effective than pursuing gangsters in the streets, where they are failing. Its all about persuading public opinion you know, since this is where there funding must originate. It will be interesting to see how this develops and how much of that funding it consumes. To read some  articles on similar Law enforcement efforts involving the " Tour de France" over the recent years, you can download a free e-book (le Tour de France an events digest)at mountedbike.com (http://mountedbike.com/tdf2.pdf). Its a brief history and a  interesting story from its start around 1903.
