Doping in the Tour de France

There is nothing new going on in pro cycling at the moment. The pro riders have been cheating one way or another for 100 years. Even modern drug scandals at the Tour de France aren't new - what about Festina, Phonak, CSC & Telekom?

People keep saying things are about to change - I don't think so. We've been in this situation before many times and the pundits always say cycling is on the verge of cleaning up. The big clean up hasn't happened in over 100 years and many crisis points - I just can't see why this time will be different.
