Sportswriter and regular commentator Stefan Fatsis of the Wall Street Journal talks with Robert Siegel about cycling news from the Tour de France.

Fatsis says it's been a bad week for the sport, with tour leader Michael Rasmussen removed from the race for missing drug tests. Fatsis says coaches, doctors and "other enablers" are also to blame.
