great article dgaddis, thx for the link. looks like that books going on my wishlist.
i’ve suspected for a long time lance was doping. about a year ago there was a lengthy article in runnersworld reguarding the underworld use of EPO. They went into detail about how for the most part, the drug testing was a joke. runners drug intake could easily be monitored and regulated so that they’d be clean when it came time to test. the most surprising thing to me though was how normal it was for runners to use it. just about everyone did it. if it could be so pervasive in the running community it didn’t seem like too far of a stretch for it to be in the biking community also.
