Was this the right punishment for Contador?

There's admittedly no real news in a Tour de France winner being purged for doping. Still, people are talking up word that Alberto Contador, who won the race in 2010, will have to surrender his title for using illegal drugs. He's the second rider to be stripped of a Tour de France championship -- the first was American Floyd Landis in 2006.

We couldn't bear not to pile on to Contador's shame. After all, it's an excuse to run this stunning picture of the cyclist punching a heckler in the 2011 Tour de France. Now it's he who has beein rope-a-doped.

Seven-time champion Lance Armstrong has long been accused of doping from virtually everyone in the cycling world, but federal prosecutors dropped their case against him last week. (Outpacing the competition always was his specialty.)
