Seriously. This BPC/Eyjafjallajokull guy is a volcano of endless idiocy.

Usually I ignore him but I am bored tonight.

He will be gone by tomorrow again and it will back to the reality of living in his mom's basement....until he gets an new IP address.

You guys have incredible patience. Every point this guy writes is incorrect or has been proved a fail in another thread.

Local Cyclist says the Hgb part of the profile is also explainable...

http://www.localcyclist.com/2009/09/lance-armstrong-meets-biopassport-tour-hgb-explainable/

Quoting this article:

"The explanation proposed here is that the the expected drop in Hgb did in fact take place. It may simply have started before the second grand tour and reached a physiologic limit before the end of the race.

The clue to this possibility is listening to the Retic. During the Tour de France the Retic was consistently at the lower limits of normal. Usually a low normal Retic indicates that the body has a high normal total number of RBCs."

As we now know, this is consistent with micro-dosing EPO which helps keep up the blood volume high, blood values constant - and reticulates at a steady-low level.

The consistent plasma volume expansion theory over the course of the 20-day tour has been disproven by scientific studies - on a study done at the Transalps mountain-biking race (on reliably clean athletes), plasma volume reached its peak after 4 days, and stayed steady thereafter.

There is one thing we now know: His claims of being in Britain are a lie. His ban expires and he decides to immediately start trolling to 3:00 a.m. and beyond. I don't think so. Alpe said that one of the IP addresses was located in New Jersey.

Back in the day, before blood testing was introduced, some riders were rumoured to have hematocrits as high as 60%. After the 50% hematocrit cap was introduced, but before EPO became detectable, I think (but I'm not sure, and I'm relying on vague memories more than anything) riders would consistently be at around 47-49% for the whole duration of a GT. Now it's not uncommon to see values below 41-42%, and Armstrong's suspect values ranged between 40 and 43% IIRC.

My question is, what are the benefits of EPO and of blood transfusions beyond rising the hematocrit levels? And how important is each extra 1% hematocrit? How much of an advantage would that refill have been for Armstrong?

I guess it all makes sense if one assumes the blood doping programs of the early and mid 90s relied on brute force to do what current programs do through finesse, but hey, I'm here to learn.

one bad day avoided is one good day gained.

Bobby Crehan needs to get back on his meds.

I hope that one day, we will be able to pinpoint him as we pinpointed Flyer. I honestly want to know where he lives.

Alpe tracked one of his addresses in Secaucus, New Jersey. His name is evidently *** deleted by mod **** There has to be someone from NJ who knows this sad sack.

Here is one:*** deleted by mod ****

Secaucus is the home to many data centers that host free proxies. When our friend runs out of IP addresses he goes that route.

This is not his first time at the rodeo, he knows what he is doing.

Judging by the time that he posts, he is not in Britain. The east coast of the U.S. makes sense.

For some of his usernames he was using hidemyass.com.

There are natural reasons for the Hct to rise. Varying hydration levels are probably the most common, also the level of iron in the body (an iron injection might see a rise) and what stage someone is in the natural reticulocyte cycle has an effect.

Sure dehydration would increase Hkr, but since these control tests are done in the morning to eliminate this possibility, can you provide a reasonable explanation how an athlete would be dehydrated just before another stage?

Supplemental iron is recommended when blood values are low - specifically blood's own ferritin levels. But there's zero effect to increase Hb or Hkr levels unless you're suffering from anemia. Why bring it up here?

A normal, non-doped body has just about 1% of new red blood cells (reticulocytes) every day - this is based on an average life cycle of 120 days per red blood cell. What do you refer to by the " natural reticulocyte cycle"? This is not like the 30-day unrelated period our female compatriots experience...
 
More of the typical BPC lies. I am only been banned from one site, and that is because Coolhand banned me for complaining about Realgains getting banned from RBR. Heck, a large number of the good posters here are banned from RBR because of Coolhand's twisted love affair with Armstrong.
