RE: Tyler Hamilton's heavy doping program revealed
Anyone who has read about cycling any amount already knew that this went on. For those of you too dense to get it on your own it was all laid bare during the Festina Scandal in 1998. The riders were all questioned by judges and six of them all admitted doping (and the extent of it) and Richard Virenque pretended that he didn't take part. This was 8 years ago, so those of you who are surprised are either 15 years old or havn't been paying attention.
They don't go after distance runners with the same ferocity because there is so much less money in the sport and only the track circuit is in Europe. The worlds best dist. runners live outside of Europe (officially). But those of you who don't get it have to understand that the exact same things go on in all sports, including running.
The only thing that is different than 10 years ago is that there is more re-infusion blood doping going on (including homologous blood transfusions) because EPO is easier to catch now.
Why did Hamilton win L-B-L? Romandie? The Olympic Time Trial? Do you really think that he could beat riders that WERE DOPING? No, it's impossible.
It's the same in running. Several at or near National or World records have been busted for EPO. Do you think that they are the only ones using it?
