Impey's story is bogus. So are these protocol's posted by those defending his nonsense. Every study I have read on the subject uses a similar administration of bicarb. 200 to 500 mg per kg is consumed 30 to 120 minutes before testing. Some researches recommend breaking the amount in two instead of consuming it all at once because gastric distress is often reduced. The soda is administered in liquid. The thought that he benefited from popping a few capsules in the days before a race is not believable. The idea that he would be shoveling handfuls of pills into his mouth during the last hundred klicks in today's environment of ubiquitous cameras is ridiculous. We saw what type of trouble Froome got into for using an inhaler before a climb.
