New ways to Dope?

Found this, it is an interesting read although it seems it was dated around the olympic time last year. It lists alot of different ways to cheat. I like some of them especially this one

Lastly, use mustard?

Athletes turned off by the latest biotech breakthroughs can try this recipe: Strip down and rub mustard oil all over your body.

While exploring the role skin plays in the production of red blood cells, Randy Johnson's team of researchers at UC San Diego found that rubbing mustard oil on mice caused spikes in natural EPO production, and that led to increased red blood cell levels.

It's unclear how much mustard oil a human athlete would need to enhance performance, or how much mustard oil could lead to strokes and heart attacks.

With all the crazy, complicated doping schemes out there could the journey to the top of the podium simply require a trip to the grocery store?

Can you just image Lance or Basso, or someone mustarding themselves up just to try and boost there crit level. Ha Ha, it would be hilarious.:D
I can see it now. David Millar rolls up beside Armstrong and in his best high society British accent asks, "Pardon me, Sir. Do you have any Grey Poupon."

Now I am off to the organic food store to buy a summer's worth of mustard oil...

I should make an embrocation out of it and market it as EPOil.

It was Ullrich's favourite substance abuse, why do you think he put on so much weight in the off-season. Because he was eating so many bratwurst with mustard.:D
