We've covered the Armstrong case from time to time here in RST, so
these articles may be appreciated:

Think drug testing works? Think again.
"Report Describes How Armstrong and His Team Eluded Doping Tests"
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/12/sports/cycling/how-lance-armstrong-...

Sadly, doping was so prevalent young athletes were basically
shanghaied into the system.
"For an Armstrong Insider, a Passion for Cycling Gave Way to
Corruption"
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/12/sports/cycling/for-armstrong-teamma...

Armstrong and his pals were doping masterminds. Their parody of
"Purple Haze":

EPO all in my veins
Lately things just dont seem the same
Actin funny, but I dont know why
Scuse me while I pass this guy.

The last sentence of the following paragraph contains a fascinating
tidbit that I'd never heard before. It should intrigue RST:

"As an example of the extreme care the team would take to avoid
positive tests, the doctor [Michele Ferrari] suggested that the riders
inject EPO directly into their veins instead of under their skin,
which would lessen the possibility that the drug would be picked up by
tests. He pushed the use of hypoxic chambers, which he said also
reduced the effectiveness of the EPO test."

The sad part is the Armstrong case is just the tip of the iceberg in
pro sports.

Some very interesting stuff comes from reading some of the cycling
forums and not just about cycling, about many pro sports. Some good
information and debate.

It's a shame that young athletes have to become cheats to win.  The
only answer
is to legalize the safe administration of these *** and be done with
all of this
nonsense.
