Landis stripped of win

I heard on the way to work that the yellow jersey was officially given to the second placed rider, Perrero(sp?) I think it was.

I have no other facts than that, you all know how to use google.

Thank goodness for that. Maybe we can move on now. Pity about the damage that was done to Pierrero's career though (a TdF win should make you a rich man, but not eighteen months after the event. Maybe he could sue Landis).

Amen. Talk about ripped off.
