More Tour de France Doping

Although the 2012 Tour de France ended last weekend it still brought controversy this year as RadioShack-Nissan cyclist Frank Schleck of Luxembourg failed a doping test for the diuretic Xipamide. Schleck was in 12th place at the time the news broke which prompted his withdrawal from the race. A few days later Schleck's B sample also came back positive but he maintains his innocence and determined to find the cause of his contact with Xipamide. RadioShack was the team Lance Armstrong previously rode for and who is now under doping investigations by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
