TdF in turmoil!

The big guns are out of the Tour de France:

Top-ranked cyclists Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso will not compete in the Tour de France after being suspended by their team managers today amid an explosive doping scandal that has upended the sport on the eve of its most important race.

VeloNews continues the coverage.

Perhaps this means that predicted future American winners of the TdF have moved up in time to get the maillot jaune sooner. Bicycling mag talks about Dave Zabriskie and Floyd Landis as potential winners. Landis has been having a great year (tearing up three major competitions already), and Zabriskie’s probably not quite ready yet, but he’s the best time trialer in the world (plus, he’s kind of cute).
