    VeloNews.com is reporting that the big names of American road racing made their message loud and clear at Sunday's opening day of the Amgen Tour of California. Led by Gerolsteiner's Levi Leipheimer - one of a handful of homegrown stage racers being touted as hopefuls to take the torch from the recently retired Lance Armstrong - American riders swept the top-five of the 1.9-mile prologue in scenic San Francisco.

    Kind of funny that Amgen, maker of two banned drugs, is sponsoring the event.

    What, you expect me to not only have read, but also remember something that was posted 4 days ago? I've slept since then. I don't think I read the other thread, either.

    To give Amegen some credit, they do recognize the silliness, and actually consider it a useful marketing tool, to promote the legitimate uses of their drugs.
