    One of the riders who is now out of the race is Gerolsteiner's Andrea Moletta. The team took him out after his father was stopped on his way to the Giro by the Italian anti-doping investigators. He was in a car with two other people, and they were found to have a lot of Viagra with them – either 82 tablets or 82 packages, depending on which source you read.

    what would you do with that?

    Id like to try these drugs to see if they actually do - do anything :blush:
  7. Presumably you wouldn't use them on the TT stages, because you wouldn't be able to get into a low-enough position ?
  8. Team 'High Rode' might be grateful recipients...

    Daddy's a diamond geezer too...

    On a serious note, the ingredient Sildenafil in Viagra has been shown to increase performance in situations with low oxygen...such as mountains.

    Sorry. Very funny and all that, but it's no different to Festina. Legal or not, it's cheating. The message hasn't got through has it? Seems the game is still on. Heaven help us if it blows up again at the Tour. And I bet it will...

    Incidentally, Viagra does have some nasty side effects.
