Riders began dying from EPO use in the late 1980s.QuickStepper said:Not testosterone that's for sure. I don't care how much of it one took, this sounds more like a case of extreme overtraining and possible hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. "Shredded" could mean any number of things, from sudden cardiac death to heart failure (which is essentially a big, floppy heart muscle that simply can no longer efficiently pump). If the autopsy revealed some thrombosis, one might think blood doping (not autologous), or perhaps early EPO (was this in the early 1990's?). Possibly amphetimine or cocaine usage, but not likely testosterone.
