So I read that Kiprop has supposedly tested positive for EPO in an out of competition test at the end of the year. Not being an expert on how to actually dope, I"ll admit the first question that popped into my head was, "Why would someone be on EPO at the end of the year? Not knowning the ins and outs of how to dope, that makes little sense to me"
Wouldn't one want only to be on it in season as the risk to lower the chances of getting caught?
Or do you need to be on it all the time to try to trick the biological passport?
Or do you need to be on it for a long time to get the training benefit? Like do you need to do a whole training cycle on EPO to really gain or can you just do your normal training and cycle on EPO before the competitions?
