Rumsas: "The drugs are for my dog"

Rumsas again: "The drugs are for my mother-in-law. She's very hairy and the drugs help"

Leukemans: "My testosterone was high because I was having sex when the testers came over"
 
I suppose the best excuse in the sence that it has probably been the most succesful is the "i intended to dope but didnt" excuse.

Unsucesful with Basso as far as ban goes but succesful in maintaining popularity.
Almost succesful with Valverde and succesful in maintaining popularity.
Totaly succesful with Frank Schleck.

Its amazing how Frank has got away scot free. I haven't heard any insinuations against Andy either.Even Riis Mr 60% has got off lightly, and he is the best example yet of cart horse becomes race horse

How about "Testing is against my human rights"?

Funny you should mention that. Im a tad suprised that ( as far as I know) no rider has protested at the taking of blood for testing as its an invasive procedure ( needle) unlike urine collection.
On grounds of religon could a Mormon claim the taking of blood transgreses there religous convictions?:rolleyes:

Didn't Kashechkin try that or something similar? I assume that's what Animal's referring to.

I think Manny Paqiuo refused blood testing for the proposed fight with Floyd Mayweather I was amazed that blood testing wasnt mandatory in boxing

And its arguably the sport were doping can cause the most damage, seeing as getting extra power, speed, endurance etc will simply mean you can cause more damage to your opponent.

I don't think the Mormons have a prohibition against it, but perhaps Jehova's Witnesses (or do they just forbid blood transfusions?)

Hi there! Have a coffee while I take a shower.

Technically, I don't think they even offered the guy a coffee. That wasn't until later in the season.., when Johan and Demol broke beignets with the UCI in the hotel cafe while the Astana boys "freshened up" :D
