Tour riders try to clean up cycling's image

On the eve of the 100th Tour de France, teams hope to repair trust after string of doping scandals.

    It is still the most famous cycling event in the world - but this year's riders are hoping this race can help repair some of the damage done to their sport.

    The riders who have endured months sacrifice are now ready to sprint and climb their way across France.

    But disgraced Lance Armstrong is still stealing the headlines, telling the world it is impossible to win the 23 day endurance test without using doping.
