Amateur Doping

Anyone who has raced Masters knows there are some *really* fast guys out there, ones with income to buy the good stuff, ones who are physicians, etc. Now a lot of this has to be people who have been riding for twenty years, been living the "lifestyle" the whole time, and know how to train; but you have to wonder about some people. The ones that I have known that are definitely doping are using steroids, mostly I think for cosmetic reasons.

What are people's experience with amateurs doping?
masters doping

for sure guys do it. i raced in the "elite" masters races in the 80's and 90's
and there were guys who were "aliens" if you get my drift. i trained hard, ate right, but they were always at another level. it took me awhile to figure out they might be doping. i thought "hey we are just masters racing for fun and pain." not these guys. i won't name any names, but it does get you angry, these many years later.

People spend tens of thousands on fake boobs, botox, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, whatnot.

And of course amateurs dope.

Not less than a few of them.

You can find out who.... Follow local TT results weekly. A 20 K TT or a 25 K.

cat 1/2 Riders who are clean and well aero'd out always come very close to their previous times all season long ( within 20 seconds). Watch to see if anybody drops 1-2 minutes! Their doped for sure if they drop that much time.
