I read this article on the cat 3 guy who got 2 years for hgh and epo at the gran fondo in NY. Crazy how had he taken the stuff 2 days earlier he probably would not have been caught. (last use was 5 days before testing when they say epo undetectable after 7.)
I would like to hear what the man said about what his body does when he stops taking it. Does he suck really bad, goes back to cat 4 speed? Or does he keep his fitness/strength/breath and just doesn't improve.
It makes me think of the lifetime ban. If a guy dopes for 10 years, getting better and better every year, then the sport changes, the testing beats the dopers, and everyone stops doping, does he have an advantage over someone who has never used the stuff, even if he has been clean for a year? I think so, I think a lifetime ban for cheating is good.
