As a lifelong touring cyclist, I wasn’t shocked or dismayed at the disgracing of Tour de France winner Floyd Landis for an apparent doping violation. Anyone who knows the history of the sport knows that performance-enhancing substances of some sort — cocaine in the 19th century, testosterone in the 21st — have been coursing through pro cyclists’ veins since the beginning. I think this tradition owes to another dirty little secret of professional bicycling that no one wants to admit: The sport is just too damn hard.
