Is the Chicken on Cow Blood?

Pro cycling starts to border on the surreal. In a feature entitled "VeloNews Exclusive: Ex-cyclist levels doping charges at Rasmussen", Velonews reports that in 2002 Rasmussen supposedly tried to get a fellow cyclist to bring a cow blood based substance into Italy for him. Rasmussen allegedly told this guy the box had a pair of cycling shoes in it.

Cow blood? I'm just going to stop because I think I'm going to puke.

My neighbor is a Dane, and also one hell of a strong rider. But now he's not only lost his national cycling hero - Bjarne Riis - but now he's lost the chance to have a new Danish Champ....

Rasmussen should just quit and get away, this thing is going to explode....Careers, unfortunately need to be destroyed now. Lifetime bans for Basso, Tyler, Hondo, and all the rest....
