At the 2008 Giro we had Sella winning 3 mountain stages, and subsequently testing positive for CERA-Epo after he was targeted for by the UCI.

I can't think of any similar stand-out performances at this year's Giro. So I'm thinking that we might not get any serious doping cases from this year's Giro. Who'll bet against me?

You could argue that Di Luca's was a standout performance right the way through given his form of recent years  39

But I agree no-one did anything extraordinary… except maybe that Rabobank mechanic

So I think your money is safe

yeah the only one who was a little bit interesting in my opinion was di luca, he may not have taken time on many stages but he was leading groups and packs up all the major climbs.

But Di Luca always looked like he was right on the rivet when he was really pushing it; Menchov seemed to be able to sit with him all the time and never opened his mouth...

Di Luca positive for CERA during Giro.

Well done hammergonewest and Jon. You both get a point, or a gold star, or something.

Here's hoping a four year ban at least!

That may be the least of his worries if the Italian authorities decide to start an investigation for sporting fraud

Bit of a bummer really - I liked the way he rode, well I thought I did.
