Previous EPO sanction
Does USADA not surf this site? They could gauge a pretty good idea of what non-sanctioned races they should turn up at.

I have seen in cycling where USADA will show up at races they typically wouldn't have, where questionable guys were known to show up due to nice payouts. Clearly they has been tipped off. Pretty sure if you have local situations as described on here above you can contact USADA and point them in the right direction.
That race gave away 3,000, 2,500, and 2,000 for top 3. That is a huge amount of money for a race that had 780 finishers and 20th place was near 19 minutes.
Erb's Twitter feed shows an interesting exchange with Herron. Erb suggests - I think - that both the race and the competitors were surprised when USADA showed up. The race was not USATF-sanctioned. Herron speculates the thre testing may have been targeted. Erb and others also noted the connection to the coach-agent and previous sanctions for other members.
