fair enough. to be sure, i certainly don't think he went to Freiburg with the intention to dope or cheat. no cheating intentions.131313 said:Have you ever met an 18 year old bike racer? By and large they're pretty dumb. My limited understanding of the UV blacklight procedure is that it's just quacky medicine, not doping. Who knows, maybe he was sent out with the whole white lunch bag of goodies, too.
he should've gone to a normal doc (an old school Hausartzt) though.
as e.g. benotti69 has pointed out on several occasions, there are very few physical shortcomings for which a normal doc/hausartzt wouldn't be good enough.
but I agree with you we can't really blame kittel for going to Freiburg if he was recommended to go there.
I guess i'm just pointing out the general naivity among cyclists and by extension their readiness to undergo dodgy treatment.
the physio or team doctor says jump, they say how high.
