Tour de France: 11th Stage dope cheat arrested

Earlier today it was announced that a competitor in this years Tour de France was found positive for testosterone from tests conducted after the 11th stage. When I first heard this I felt a little sick to my stomach. South African Robbie Hunter, one of my cycling idols won the 11th stage and by so doing was automatically tested.

News24.com is reporting that the dope cheat is in fact Italian Christian Moreni and that he was arrested after today’s 16th stage. The article goes on to say that his team’s hotel room was also raided by police. Moreni is a member of the Cofidis cycling team.
