Lance Armstrong's podcast (The Move) has some episodes sponsored by pedlars of Ketones. He says they are good ...

It's a puzzle ...
If it's not banned then it's not doping so a decision to be made by the individual if they feel it's of use. It's there to be used like any other legal supplement.
I think a good test is if the team feel happy to talk about what they are doing.

I never heard any team say "Yeah, we dose our riders with as much Tramadol as we can. They can't feel any pain so they can do what they otherwise wouldn't be able to do. No problem, it isn't banned" so that suggests that they realised it was dodgy, even when legal. (It was finally banned in March this year, but in 2017 4.4% of all doping tests showed the presence of it.)

Floyd Landis is a nobhead. He may be hard done by having to change the team name at the T of Utah but I honestly don't care.

"I was back in Utah in 2009, I think, and I stayed with Greg Miller and his family," Landis said. "From what I understand he's told people, 'Floyd looked me in the eye and told me he didn't dope.' So maybe he's still bitter about that. But if that's the type of thing that gets you worked up, maybe cycling isn't the sport for you."

If you're a proven liar, computer hacker, cheating bastard, taker of public money under false pretences...

...then maybe cycling isn't the sport for you. farking hypocrite.

He has already retired - twice - so that is a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted! :whistle:

Mind you, he has now lost his commentator job according to Wikipedia.
Was he still making any appearance money from UCIWT Gran Fondos and the like? Might as well stop that.

I see he quit (so he wasn't questioned by other reporters at the Giro?) rather than RAI actually fire him. RAI Sport's boss reportedly still backed him. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/petacchi-quits-giro-ditalia-after-uci-accuse-him-of-potential-doping-violation/

Are RAI part of the problem, or is it right they wait for a ruling?
