Alot of the stuff on the banned list, way overrated & exagerated by the tenants to these forums. Granted, ban riders, let the UCI do they want, but don't act like doping will make you a world beater or it will make any top rider an eventual Tour winner.
Some of the guys on here seem to think doping will have you riding at 15MPH quicker than the day before, when you were clean. That doping see's a rider gain success over a clean riders from the get go & when the honkers do see success, the success continues.
Its unfortunate such evil mixtures of chemicals, hormones & vetinary medications etc wouldn't work for any rider in any team, trying to claim a Tour De France. But there you go. Maybe you can go ask the Kelme-Costa Blanca team, maybe they will tell you what this crap did for there potentials & performances in the Tours, Classics???.. Suddenly they were beating everyone under the sun. Right?. WRONG. Doping doesn't work.
Does a honker beat a clean Cancellara in the TT at the Worlds in Mendrisio?. Does a honker beat a clean Cadel in the Road World championship?
Live & let die. Lets stop putting too much emphasis on doping.
If it didn't work for the Kelme team, then errrrrr.... Whats it gonna do for Armstrong again?...
So what do all the "haters" puts Armstrongs wins down to???... Doping.
Take a walk. Drop the hate.
If doping is making riders fail, it sure ain't gonna make a Armstrong a winner, lol...
