Holder of Maillot Jaune fails EPO testpeloton

Not Lance! Bo Hamburger, holder of the yellow jersey during the 99 Tour was the first to have failed the new UCI EPO test. A rider for CSC Online, he was immediately sacked by Director Sportif Barne Riis. Hamburger's hemocrit level was within UCI standards, but traces of EPO were found in his urine sample.

Between Hamburgers wonderful test results, and JaJa's winning this season CSC Online proves to be a wonderful Tour wildcard selection.

Only 2 men wore the yellow jersey in the 99 TdF, Lance Armstrong and Jaan Kirsipuu.

1998 was the year Hamburger wore the yellow. Thanks for pointing out that I sometimes type too fast.
