In the words of Michele Ferrari, writing on his own website: http://53x12.com/do/show?page=indepth.view&id=139
A few days ago, in Monte Carlo, another Englishman, Mo Farah, a specialist of the 5000 and 10000 meters, managed to improve the European record of 1500m, which was holding on for 16 years (Cacho, 1997): 3'28 "81, improving by more than 5 seconds his personal best.
Just like Froome, Farah, as well as for the outstanding performances, impresses for the ghastly, unhealthy thinness.
Achieved how...? Only with a particularly strict diet?
This is the question those who care about the physical and mental health of the athletes should try to answer to.
Obviously, Dr. Ferrari has a history, and his expressed concerns for the physical and mental health of athletes seem more than a little hypocritical. Still, he never denied that PEDs exist amongst endurance athletes, unlike another Italian coach who also likes to write on the same subject.
