I disagree with this quote. I think the majority of doped riders are the opposite actually. They do enjoy the victory and some even believe they "didn't do anything wrong" for whatever reasons (they think everyones do it or well thats all they know and have grown up with etc). Also like with CERA they didn't think it was possible to get a positive since there wasn't a test for it or UCI didn't know at the time (can't remember exactly). Something like that could be happening now.sniper said:just look at that foto.
It's basically the facial expression of every rider who wins: unable to really enjoy the victory, living with the lie, knowing it's a fraud, knowing he's a fraud. knowing he's defrauding. knowing the next day he might be facing a positive.
If what you said was true I don't think we would have as much of a problem with doping as we do now ...
Oh and as an edit Kloden as he approaches the end of his career strikes me as someone who this does not describe for sure ! He has had a comfortable career, seems money-wise he is solid, he's never concerned with actually winning anything - always loves being the domestique and being more relaxed. He would not put himself under all this neccessary 'stress' at the end of his cycling to risk a win, so either 1)he isn't on drugs or 2)he couldn't give a **** if gets caught.
