Tour de France leader Michael Rasmussen is "shrouded in suspicion" for failing to tell officials where he was during anti-doping tests, claims Brit cyclist David Millar. "It is unacceptable of a rider of his stature and responsibility," said Millar, who was himself once chastised for using performance enhancers.
The Danish cycling union said last week it had kicked Rasmussen off the national team because he had missed drug tests. Rasmussen, who hasn't commented on the accusations, has performed brilliantly in this year's mountain stages. Though one-time favorite Alexandre Vinokourov won the 15th Stage yesterday, Rasmussen still holds a 2-minute margin over second-place Alberto Contador from Spain.
