Well, an 80kg+ sprinter climbing the Aubisque almost on par with one of the world's best uphill is enough circumstantial evidence to me. Hanging out with Armstrong doesn't help either.Kristian said:That statement does not prove anything. The question in the original post is if Norway dope not if a bunch of random cyclists dope.
In the context of Norwegian cycling doping is highly unlikely. The culture in Norwegian sports, media and public is STRONGLY against doping. If they get caught the would be dead as athletes, marketing wise and I also think an event like TDF would be impossible to sell to tv-channels here.
I know there are a lot of doping cynics on this forums. But with regards to EBH and Thor all facts points to the fact that they are clean. There is even no circumstantial evidence to point to doping.
You are right about the Norwegian media being pretty naive and puritanical, though.
