Tour De France Set For 100th Race Under Cloud Of Doping Scandals

The 100th Tour de France begins Saturday, and organizers "are doing their best to avoid a delicate topic: the doping epidemic that has forced them to strip titles from the winners of nine of the last 15 tours." A promotional video for the event "shows more billowy fields and mountaintops than actual humans on bikes." The '13 marketing campaign also is "notable for what's missing," as the tour's website "no longer has extensive archives" of historical data (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 6/28).
