:( times a million
real shame for next years tour.
The trouble is, even if he has a perfectly reasonble excuse and is eventually cleared, there will always be a huge doubt in my mind now.
and Micheal Johnson, which is a shame cos they're two of my favourite sportsmen of all time.
why is it that cycling and althetics seem to have all the cheats? is it just cos they do more testing?
Michael Johnson never tested positive for anything.
Because of everyone else doing something, he can't trust those who are/OR MIGHT be amazingly superhuman anyway.
I speak fluent meths.
even i dont understand it.
but i can never watch athletics and be 100% positive they're not all the drugs.
but the history of cycling is just mired in drug use - it's just ingrained since - pretty much - day one when cocaine, morphine and even strychnine were order of the day.
and talking to my brother's housemate's friend about cycling. They were telling a story about how they were taking part in an amateur cycle race somewhere in Belgium - it was about a 40 mile race - and everyone, including the guy, were taking some form of drug at the start line. He wasn't sure what he took, he thought it was either speed or cocaine.
I am clinging to this faint hope. Please don't be true. Upsetting scenes.
Bit of info about the amounts here -http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/alberto-contador-suspended-over-traces-of-clenbuterol-from-tour-de-france-test
Absolute pisser though - it was an awesome Tour.
'TWAT'. Even though I 'expect' all cyclists to be druggers, it's still a bitch when it comes out, especially if its someone who has won.
There's a part of me that would like to see a drugged-up version of sport to see how grotesque/amazing the people/performances would be.
This guy won that cycling race on them, that's pretty impressive.
i do remember playing football after a night on the drugs and it actually did make me a lot faster.
i nearly died after the game tho.
