Default Dutch TV presentor on EPO program

http://www.nu.nl/media/2986775/tv-pr...gebruiken.html

He's currently on the program. There will be a show dedicated to doping, January 2nd.

I hope he's being well guided, not just safely take the stuff much as possible, but to also gain convincing performance enhancement with decent scientific proof of such.

No TV in my house, so I hope to hear more about it here in The Clinic.

Is that a serious response? Then this was a retorical question.

If the guy is a runner or cyclist, at any level, it will nog be so hard to do a baseline test, take the epo, not change training volume or train as much as schedule and body permit as usual, and after a while re-test.
He's Dutch, so cycling will be common to him whoever he is, he could deliver a reliable baseline test for sure.

From the one time I've seen the program, I remember it's leaning towards comedy, not very serious.
This guy trying out EPO fits the current Dutch television trend aimed at letting presentators do 'extreme' stuff (such as these presentators slicing off, cooking, and then eating their own flesh in a program recently, images of which went around the world).

Could be wrong, but I'm not expecting anything nearly as good as what the Germans generally come up with when dealing with doping on television. (Cf. the German Blut und Spielen documentary from 2007.)
