Tour De California

This year's running of the race is firmly backed by the bio-tech firm Amgen. You've heard of them before, but you may not know exactly what bio-nutrients they create.

EPO. No f-ing bullshit. The number one supplier of EPO in the United States is sponsoring the top race in the United States. Why let this happen? Money. The 2007 Tour of Cali is projected to rake in over $100 million dollars from advertising, sales, and local business revenue.

So if it's bringing in so much money to cycling why is it so bad? Think of it this way: imagine a steroid supplier advertising at Fenway Park. Or the Columbian drug cartels sponsoring the super bowl. Yeah that f-ing sad.

Cycling is dead.
