I just wish I could look at someone and instantly tell if they are a doper!! I am starting to suspect fellow amateurs that I ride with!! Some guys I ride with have legs that are so big and sculpted they just look unreal, am I just not riding correctly?? lol... some guys I used to drop like a sack of potatoes, now they drop me like it ain't no sweat. Ugh all this doping is really getting to me! both the real and imagined!
mainly it is by those who cannot gain muscle or definition so they assume all who can are doping this makes the weaker individuals feel better about there physical/mental inadequacies.
Means exactly zero. Freaked me out my first races as a junior, till I recognized that me and my skinny legs were doing fine while many of those freaky leg dudes were out the back (even in crits).santacruz said:but then there are those with crazy monster looking legs
barn yard said:OP needs to go and have a look at some WC level track racing if he wants to see what big legs look like, i wonder if gregory bauge can even buy jeans off the shelf?
(for the record i am not suggesting gregory is on any type of illegal program)

And them big muscles need extra oxygen the lungs can only supply so much.
keep them trim.
They also waigh a lot more than fat so you still got to drag them over the hils
santacruz said:nah I don't honestly believe anyone is a doper unless I see them jamming a needle in their thigh, lol. and it doesn't make me feel better, I pretty much just feel like a slow poke cat 4 loser 24/7, ha ha.
it makes me wonder though, because I know a lot of incredibly fast people who can go longer and faster than anyone around, and their legs just look like mine pretty much, lean and slightly defined... but then there are those with crazy monster looking legs, does it mean they are better sprinters or something? is the big muscle usually fast twitch?
