That muscle definition is hard to believe in a 53 year old .

No it's not. Just for reference, I'm 56 and I've easily got as much muscle tone as he does. Light weights and high reps. Never smoked and I don't eat garbage. But...believe what you will.

I agree as well. Really sad how someone with talent and hard work can't run something solid and be accused of doping. I've never met Brad but watched one of his races on YouTube. He gave it his all and earned the results. Drugs? I don't think so.

I am not going to disagree with you and this question is not aimed at Barton or anyone in particular (yes, it is possible he is clean) but is a general observation: how can you tell the difference between talent and hard work, and doping? They'll look the same. A doped athlete can train harder and appear more talented because they are more successful. Doped athletes will look clean - until they are caught. And we know only few are caught. If Brad is clean we also know for a fact that he's also beating guys who aren't. That's sport, now.
