Boonen Re-hab?

Denial is a problem, both with recreational drugs and PED's in the peloton.

That's why folks shouldn't condone the use of one and criticise the use of another.

I'm pretty sure that someone who has no worries about intaking the recreational variety, would have less of an issue, graduating to those that have the potential to increase performance and therefore salary.

so true. Daily PED intake not only produces increase in aerobic/poweroutput, but upsets the chemical balance of our systems.

Look what common sugar can do to euphoria! -. athletes become emotionally dependent on the crutch of drugs. It can be seen by some as an answer to depression- possibly caused by the chemical imbalance or guilt of doping.

Rec drugs becomes an easy option, easy to obtain, easy (ier) to administer.

You dont have to look far within the pro ranks to find a few coke habits. One particular rider lost the entire 2009 season! His name appeared on lots of start lists but few signing on sheets. ANNNNNNNND then is given a new contract with a new team- cause his mate is running the show.
OMERTA !!!!!! still there! and still stoned!

"ssssshhhh he be all right, i look after him'
