Think about it. It is a possibility.
These guys are gladiators on the road, cycling up mountain passes. Racing along at faster and faster speeds.
Think about how wasted you would be after doing a century! Now consider doing that for a week, one day off then doing a century through the mountains. A couple flat stages, then a couple more centuries in the mountains, then one day off then a couple more centuries.
If this is what the spectators expect is that what they should be given?
How much abuse can the human body take? How many miles can the human body pedal all out and get up the next day prepared to do it again, but even harder this time.

The main reason that cyclists take steroids is not for building muscle!! It is for recovery!! Is that what is necessary of these gladiators to keep us entertained?!
Do we constantly desire more mountains & more excitement each year?
How can the promoters keep doing this while keeping the fans and more importantly the sponsors happy?
Is it all at the expense of the riders themselves?
Once a cyclists is found to be doping should be shame the rider or shame the race?
