Three-year-old Russian (tri)cyclist Sophie Ivanov (seen here blazing through the Pyrenees in Stage 16), a recent addition to team Festina, was declared winner of the Tour de France after everyone else was disqualified for doping.

Also, Phil Hughes dominated in his rehab start last night (6 innings, 2 hits, 0 runs, 5 ks), and top prospects Joba Chamberlain and Ian Kennedy have been called up to AAA.

  • Rumors persist that Sophie’s on something. There’s no other reasonable explanation for her alarming growth over the past 12 months and enhanced performance from her Year 2 effort at the TdF.

  • I think all the cyclists should get together and say, hey, we’re going to do the next one clean. Moreso than baseball, I hear the rumors that they’re ALL doping, so maybe they should ALL stop. It’s not really a competitive edge if everyone else is doing it.

  • Maybe if they’re all doing it, then let them all do it? i’ve driven the col d’iseran and the col de galibier, and it was rough–in a car. anyone who does that NOT on drugs is a completely insane.

  • Does Lance Armstrong = Barry Bonds? According to people who have spoken out against him he may be an even bigger jerk.

  • QuoSF – that’s the classic prisoner’s dilemma, isn’t it? The problem is if you _don’t_ cheat, you’ll fall behind..
