    Guess so, but at least it proves that I am not performance enhanced by EPO :ohmy:

    I think its great people are being tested at various levels of the sport though, it will be very sad if its discovered to be widespread in the armature ranks, lets hope not.

    Frightening isn't it? One, that it's so important to win that they'll cheat and, two, that it's self-administering something they probably know little about.

    There is plenty of doping going on in amateur levels.

    It's always the wannabes who're more susceptible to the temptation of short-cuts to success. One only has to look at weight-lifting or body building.

  10. Really? In which case you really should send your evidence to British Cycling.

    Bodybuilding such as Mr Olympia (Ronnie Coleman etc) allows juicing, well not so much allows (because of legal implications), but doesnt really care nor does anything about it, turns a blind eye if you will, it is accepted, Arnie used to take Dianobol daily like vitamin pills. If you want to find a clean bodybuilder, refer to "natural" bodybuilding competitions :tongue:

    Not sure about weight lifting competitions stance on steriods, my girlfriend's brother is a sponsored athlete and a UK and World Power lifting Champion with World Records to his name, he is clean, but I wonder how often he gets drug tested, probably fairly often I'd imagine!
