    Just had my attention drawn to this one by colleagues who believe that all cyclists are dope fiends and all footballers, tennis players, athletes, etc., are as good as gold! (They're half right).

    They thought it was hysterical, but I had to laugh myself, the Onion hits the nail on the head so many times.

    Good satire BUT... it supports the notion that the drug problems are in cycling because the TdF and its mountains is too hard to do without drugs - which quite a few people have shown to be completely untrue.

    The key is the time taken. What takes pros 4 hours might take 8 for 'normal' people but it can be done day after day - not on water alone obviously- but with good nutrition etc.

    It's money and the need to win that drives the drug abuse in all sports. Until drug abuse 'costs' in finacial and status terms it will always be a problem..... methinks :)

    Good to see they chose a picture of our Bradley as the archetypal drug free rider :D
