Regarding the mentions of an echo-positive, I simply refuse to believe they can get away with blood transfusions in 2017. They still might have 5-6 years ago (remember Contador's plasticized blood while clenbuteroling), but now???
If they can, this means all top guys are doing it to "level the field", just like in Armstrong's era.
Again, so sad for the sport
What’s sad , I mean doping is rife, always has been. It’s not as though cycling has had some kind of clean era . Plenty of cyclists have been busted since Armstrong confessed. Mid peloton riders ,that tells you that they are doping just to survive /compete at that level. I mean all these mid peloton riders caught doping have been
getting the as#* kicked by the likes of Froome etc . So there is no way Froome and the rest are clean just not possible.
You can microdose EPO till it comes out of your ears and you won’t get caught .it makes a complete mockery Of the bio passport. There’s plenty ways to mask drugs and a lot of athletes who train abroad have plenty of time to clear their system if they happen to be out training when MR dope tester knocks at the door.
Clenbuterol is the go to drug to shed sh** loads of weight and keeping all your power.
How do you think some of these riders are so skinny yet put out a lot of power . Go starve yourself like they do and you wouldn’t be able to get out of bed take some clen and you will be better than fine.
It’s time just to stop wasting money and resources on this . Let them dope and get on with it. Athletes are not going to stop and the playing field will never be even . That’s some kind of romantic fantasy some fans have. Sport is all about money and power these days and used for a political ageneda.
Brailsford must have pis**ed someone off . Because Sky are the big boys / commercial value of pro cycling . Just like the UCI ignoring Armstrong’s positive test ( saddle sores
), you don’t mess with your biggest asset.
