    I've got a TUE. I thought everyone had one.

    As a BC member the "knock on the door" is highly improbable unless you are on the ADAMS system. Testing outside of that group of elite people is usually at races. But in the case of the person with EPO, intelligence and leads from customs seem to have precipitated the UKAD testing - this is not done by BC (test appears to have been refused = non-negative finding = 4 year ban from all competitive sport).

    In theory, yes. It's the first thing in BC's terms and conditions, that you are subject to British Cycling's Anti Doping Policies. But I don't imagine it's likely, unless you happen to be importing EPO and refusing to give a sample...

    I see that the adherence to the Anti Doping Policies is "Race members only". BC "ride" membership holders are not "Athletes" for the purposes of UKAD's rules, are they?

    It's not, I don't think, the only thing that applies to race members and no-one else is the UCI registration. I think it is confusingly laid out, as that was my first conclusion. But I can only find one set of terms and conditions, which include the references to UK Anti Doping, and those T&Cs apply to all categories of membership.

    Cycling Weekly with sparkling accuracy has noted that the gentleman will face a two year ban. Er, it's four years off now....something I'm quite happy about.

    My error, the Gallego report is old news, 9 months ago! So two years was right then. Before WADA got serious. Some of the comments about labs following the article are either made by apologists or nitwits. Anyone who has visited an accredited lab will be aware just how tightly controlled conditions and samples are.

    Are you suggesting medicines used in horses may be applied to athletes? Hasn't this happened before?

    "Dad, if we tell them I didn't know what it was you were giving me, they'll reduce my ban."
