    How is Richeze riding? He was positive for testosterone before the Giro. Did he get cleared or something?

    He's riding quite well, he came third.

    I'll get my coat.

    Was it ?

    a) He blamed his younger brother who also rides for CSF Navigare and is also called "M. Richeze"
    b) They tested an amino acid supplement he was using which turned out to be contaminated and as a result the Argentine cycling federation overturned the ban
    c) CSF Group Navigare are an Irish squad and we look after our own.

    You may phone a friend...

    Obviously not c). CSF Navigare are about as Irish as Jack Charlton and Mark Lawrenson :wink:

    Edit: Oh, and Dan Martin :lol:

    At least Martin is half-Irish and you can keep those other two ball-aches!

    BTW, both Dan Martin and Chris Sutton pulled out of the race today citing stomach trouble. If they both rode for CSF, how many rolling-eye smilies would that news generate.

    Didn't notice. I might have been distracted by their shoes.

    And not in a Gok Wan type of way.
