From the Herald:HAVING won a stage of the Tour de France on Saturday, Scottish cyclist DavidMillar was naturally called upon to provide a sample for a urine test. Suchwas his state of dehydration that nothing was forthcoming. Justice was onlyserved, in fact, after Millar had downed five bottles of beer, a bottle ofwine, and a right few belts of champagne.Having proved himself drug-free, Millar spent the next day competing on theTour's daunting 14th stage up the infamous Mont Ventoux. On the downside, hefinished 67th. On a more positive note, at least he found his bike in themorning.

After a hard ride over the West Lancashire hills yesterday evening I was in such a state of dehydration I had to drink lots of lager, then some Smirnoff Ice to boost my blood sugar levels. I would not recommend chocolate covered peanuts as a suitable breakfast after a night spent imbibing the aforementioned stuff.

No, chocolate raisins are better.
