I came across this story on Bloomberg.com yesterday and have to say it is a very interesting read. The article talks about the impact that doping has had on the sport and how this negative affect has reduced the salaries of Tour de France riders by as much as one-third since last year. Some riders will earn as little as 30,000 euros ($47,397) in 2008.

If you get a moment today, click on the link. Definitely worth the read. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this. So drop me an email or leave a comment. Cheers.
