Here's a scary thought, not that it's a new one.
Ray Godkin, vice president of the International Cycling Union, says drug use in the the sport isn't going to disappear.
"We like to think we're getting ahead of this. It costs a fortune every year," said Godkin in Adelaide, where the Tour Down Under has begun. "I think it's a real shame that we've got this attached to the sport and I'm the first one to say we'll never stamp it out completely because how can you? You can't control everybody but we're certainly headed in the right direction."
Time will tell about that.
