|Subject: ||RE: Will the IOC step up EPO testing like the Tour?|
Nearly all the dopers have long ago stopped doping and let their bodies clear out the drugs they were using. As a reslt of better testing, most athletes who are dopers do their doping only during the pre-season when they are undergoing very hard training. The doping allows them to do two or three times the number of hard workouts per week as they would be able to do if not doping. By stopping the doping after the hard pre-season training, they have zero risk of testing positive and still largely benefit from their extra harding training made possible thru doping.
Even with unlimited testing, I'd be surprised if more than a few athletes test positive at Bejing. And those few who test positive are just as likely to be accidential dopers who took some supplement that was contaminated by the manufacturer.
