Damiano Cunego is out of the Tour de France.
Apparently, Lampre Coffita stepped up its doping controls a few months ago, and Cunego was forced to go clean. Without the benefit of massive amounts of performance-enhancing drugs, it seems that his performance is downright ordinary. In fact, he probably couldn't hang with the Cat IIIs in your neighborhood, much less the domestic pros.
There's a picture of Cunego in action here. It's a high quality pic, and if you look close, you can see the ravages that dope takes on a man's face. It ain't pretty.
I wonder what other doping revelations Le Monde and Dick Pound have in store for us?
