  • EPO & Cycling

    A Pantani-death generated article that I found in the local paper after a weekend in seclusion.

    From that article:

    "Gaumont estimated that 90 percent of pro
    cyclists take banned drugs,"

    I don't believe it. You'd likely yank the post if someone highlighted an excerpt from an article about track that said the same thing(or at least call the author out of his or her mind).

      Re: EPO & Cycling

      Gaumont and Manzano both have serious axes to grind. Obviously, there is doping in cycling (every couple weeks UCI announces positives). Some of Gaumont's accussations have been tested and aren't holding up well (e.g. accusation that Cedric Vasseur used cocaine). That doesn't mean doping isn't a problem in cycling but Gaumont and Manzano's claims cannot be taken at face value.

      The rest of the piece is quite good.

        This was a great piece, and cycling has more drug cheats than anyone will ever know.

          I think the weightlifters are head-and-shoulders above the rest.
