PRUDHOMME'S WORDS

Reading the article by Christian Prudhomme cyclingnews.com I think his view on Vinokourov and Basso returning to the Tour de France is fair and reasonable. Whilst Vino was once a favorite of mine and now is not he still deserves to return to his employment after serving his penalty and the same goes for
