Micro dosing EPO is almost impossible to detect. It made times like 3:26, 7:20, and 12:37 possible. Knowing those two facts, I'd guess that most dopers still use EPO.
If that's true, how are athletes from the US getting their hands on EPO without leaving a paper trail? Cash payments in an alleyway?
The same way the mafia got away with it for decades. Their "doctors" (who all have patients in their practice that actually use EPO) buy the EPO normally. Then they use it on the athletes. The only paper trail is a real doctor buying EPO for their patients. That's a pretty standard practice. The only way to prove they give it to their athletes is if you are standing in the room with them.
