    It's amazing how clean a sport that doesn't test for PED's can be.
    As long as everyone is on a level playing field I have no complaints.

      Then the Ben Johnson final, where all 8 runners have been popped should be right up your strasse.

      I would rather they all be clean, but if the rules are you are allowed certain supplements, then everyone should be in the same boat.

      Bloody asthmatics.

      I got mugged by one a few years ago. It was my fault because I should have heard him coming.
      This is what caused the delay. “Can you sign this Paul?” - 80 minutes later Barber finished his reply. (Herr Tubbs)

      I really struggle with what is a performance enhancing drug and what isn't. As a kid I struggled with asthma and had steroid inhalers and salbutamol. I was pretty good at hockey but without my puffers I could not manage more than 10 mins let alone 70. How are those drugs anything but performance enhancers? What is the difference from a front row in the school rugby team not being strong enough so takes steroids which makes him stronger? Why are my steroids okay and his not?
      Because the salbutamol that you needed wouldn't have been any help to those without asthma.
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      What's popped? I've always been suspicious of Lewis, but I don't know if he failed tests?

      Don't worry about Stat , he's very defensive over cycling and every other post implicates all other sports even though he has no evidence whatsoever to back it up.

      The fact his preferred pastime is so riddled with druggies irks him greatly, sometimes it's like listening to a child try to point a finger of blame somewhere else to deflect the ridicule levelled against him.

      A grass if you will.

      Not that I've read this one but on the strength of Moore's books that I have read I'd imagine this is worth a go.

      It would be fun if you could take whatever you liked.

      Not much fun when cycling did that.

      Lance's team rode for 3 weeks on the front, not even looking out of breath.
      While those wishing to properly challenge him took so much of everything most are 'damaged' now, the ones that are still alive.
