RobbieCanuck said:I wonder if this extrapolates to cycling. The CIRC report had estimates between 30 and 90%. I wonder where the reality lies (no pun intended). 34% translates to 74 riders (rounded down) were actively doping in the TDF.
Assuming the this does translate to cycling (big assumption) in order to take it just to the Tour you would have to assume there's an even spread across the peloton. Yet from all we read of athletics, we seem to be finding that some countries are much worse than others when it comes to doping. So you would really want to spread it by nationality.
Erroneous assumption heaped upon erroneous assumption really is no better than guess work. You might as well guess there were 112 people doping at the Tour. It would have a greater scientific soundness.
