Don’t you love the time between the Giro and the Tour?

June 7, 2007

It seems that June is the month where Police raids happen.  This year, the target is Belgium and according to Cyclingnews, 13 people are being questioned surrounding some banned substances seized in the homes.

June seems to be the month where wayward child Frank Vandenbroucke is in the news.  This time, he has attempted suicide yet again.  This time he seems to have done some harm as he is listed in grave condition.

I’ve also come to expect that June is the time when the Tour boss, now Christian Prudhomme starts whipping up the rhetoric.  His ire this year is Bjarne Riis who has been expunged from the record LeTour’s official record books after admitting he cheated.  We are not sure what is put into place.  He is currently “negotiating” the return of Bjarne’s yellow jersey. Bjarne should put it on eBay and let the ASO bid like everyone else. If only Christian put as much effort in course development as he did in writing speeches with equal tones of hubris and outrage.

And you thought June was the month for brides!
