Just for the sake of accuracy, neither Pennington nor Redpath are "convicted dopers". Both had their suspensions overturned, and rightfully so, IMO.jmax22 said:Point being that in the U.S., cycling currently leads the who's who list of dopers.... Alice Pennington, Cale Redpath...
For those who aren't familiar with the situation, they were suspended for being no-shows for doping control, at a race in which the were both listed as "alternates" for testing, and not notified. There's been way too much bandwidth wasted on this and Jason Sager, so I won't repeat it, but needless to say the sh!tshow USADA was running was the main culprit.
Sager I think actually had to serve his suspension, which was under even more ridiculous circumstances.
So in short, I'm not too impressed with that list knowing the number of guys who've been boosting their entire long, lucrative careers.
