Interesting, I wonder if it led to the ease with which he made it look too unbelievable on certain mountain stages.

ETA: Recovery can be an awesome thing, just ask Floyd.

First: it's about his junior years. So prehistory.

Second: it's based on testimonies of lunatic.

Very, very weak. Lawsuit probably incoming.

Hmm... would that be another indication that regular testing isn't working regarding the catching the career-long dopers? Or tests work but the findings are swept away by "organization"?
Most likely, Don Catlin's words are the ultimate truth regarding the doping: "tests are highly ineffective, expensive and too easy to get around and every single one of the top athletes in the world is doping..."
Shut up, Jens!

Yeah. But I'm talking specifically about mentioned case. I seriously doubt any top cyclist is taking testosterone. Seriously... It would be instant bust.

These are not testimonies but recordings from wiretaps so there's also no chance for lawsuit.

The allowable TE ratio is so ridiculous that I would think they are all using it.

Well Sammy Sanchez risked taking testosterone and the age of 38 ....so that tells me it wasnt his first time and two, he was willing to take the risk so he will not be the only one....

Those wins in Tour 2014 and all the winking looked too good tbh

It wasn't only testo but also HGH. I'm curious if Majka will take some legal action.

No:

"showed evidence of growth hormone-releasing peptide 2 (GHRP-2), a drug that increases the body's levels of growth hormone"

I think a similar remarked was written in the Contador's Head thread, when you objected to the thread premise, (though I'm not sure if the person knew your location as well.) ;)
