Justice continues to be meted out with a firm hand in the great sport of cycling. Cyril Fontayne, 43-year-old masters mechanical doper, was criminally convicted of misdemeanor attempted fraud and sentenced to sixty hours of community service. In addition to his criminal conviction and sentence, Fontayne was banned from competition for five years and ordered to pay fines and restitution of 89 euros.
Lance Armstrong: No fine, no criminal charges.
Alberto Contador: No fine, no criminal charges, allowed to come back and win the TdF.
Chris Froome: No fine, no criminal charges, no suspension. If found guilty of doping will still be allowed to keep all titles in between the time of the positive test and the finding of guilt, meaning if he wins the Tour and Giro in 2018, he will keep both titles if his case is not resolved before then.
Etc., etc., etc.

Whatever happened to using Jim Ochowicz’ time honored old school way of cutting the course?
Or…just holding onto a car up that nasty climb?
This guy should have just paid for the win! There’s plenty of precedent for that!
These riders/whippershappers just have no respect for the retro ways of cheating.
Well maybe BMC does!
Why do they call it mechanical “doping”? Was the bike using banned drugs?
Maybe the rider as well as the mechanic were doping?
