At the end someone has to go down..............

I think it is more likely that he just wanted to lose weight in the early season. Clen is easy to obtain and works very quickly. This looks like a do it yourself job by someone who thought his chance of being tested was very low.

He should have used the junk while he was in China before the season started..

Some time ago while talking with a chinese friend (cyclist as well) about Fuyu Li he mentioned to me something quiet funny that happened during a female mtb race in China where 2 of his riders (he follow some riders/teams) were taking part.

Shortly, with 1 or 2 laps to go he heard there was going to be a doping control after the race, he contacted (yelled?) to his cyclists and teld them to turn around and let some other riders to pass in front of them.
Funny enough it would be prohibited to "turn back" in a race but the chinese cycling federation changed the book rule by saying it's fine.
 
I'm shocked. What was the UCI thinking?

"Team RadioShack and its management take this incident very seriously. We will respect the rights of our rider but will enforce our zero tolerance policy should his B-sample test positive."

TUE? what does that stand for?

Therapeutic Use Exemption. A note from the doctor saying you can take it because you have a condition that requires it.

You'll notice the constant jokes/references to it in several topics. Those are because Armstrong tested positive for corticosteroids in 1999 and got away with it due to a prescription that was later established was backdated.

Or as Armstrong put it a few days before the positive: "I have no TUEs to declare. Absolutely none".

He thought they meant Two, as in balls.

Later he was nice enough and donated half (aprox) of million dollars to purchase Doping detecting equipment. Go figure.;)

Do you think Li Fuyu has that kind of money?
He is in trouble.

LA didn't test positive

Interesting did you know..

LA didn't actually test positive. They found traces of cortisone but not enough to declare a positive. It was consistent with a cream not injection, as LA said. All the talk about a TUE is actually moot.

Of course that is what the Armstrong press release would say but the fact is it was not consistent with a cream.

Armstrong was caught by not knowing that a test for artificial cortisone had been developed. The first he had heard of it was when Kevin Livingston bust into the room in a panic saying that they were testing for Cortisone with the new test.

There was never a cream. Emma O'Reilly was clear in her recollection. She was in the room when the cream story was invented. She also remembers Armstrong telling her "You know have enough to bring me down"

Kudos to cycling for catching another cheat. Personally, I am glad to read about cheaters getting caught. Cycling is by far the most aggressive sport in terms of testing. What is bothersome to me is that these guys are so arrogant (and stupid) that they believe they can get away with it.In addition to a lengthy suspension they should be required to compensate their sponsors for the negative publicity.

How come pro riders are so ignorant when it comes to doping? They know they will be scrutinized with drug testing, I know pro riders are great athletes but are stupid when it comes drug testing. Every pro rider receives a list of all banned products each year and they still try to cheat. I say you get what you deserve! Fire him!!!!!!!!

What? Emma (I’ll tell as many lies as there are zeros on that check) O’Reilly. Are you still peddling EO’R as a credible source? She was paid for her testimony in what could be construed as a criminal matter and then lied about it along with Walsh. Do better.
Doesn’t matter. LA did not test positive anyway so who cares.

RS are now on par with BMC.

Didn't other riders call Armstrong 'cortisone neck' once upon a time?

yes, and his coach was famous for using Cortisone with his riders....many of whom developed auto immune diseases that are closely linked to testicular cancer. One, Ernie Lachuga, even develop the exact same type of cancer as Armstrong did.....but of course this is only a coincidence. :rolleyes:
