1996 Tour de France’s Tainted Podium

Biking Bis’ analysis says you have to go down to at least 5th place to find a clean rider in 1996 Tour de France:

Who gets 1996 Tour de France title?

So who would be worthy to receive it? We might have to go pretty far down the list of finishers to find someone.

No. 2 that year was Jan Ullrich. No way. With 7 Telekom teammates already admitting to taking banned performance boosters, and doctors saying they readily dispensed them, is anyone serious about giving Ullrich the title?

That’s pathetic.
