Schumachers Lawyer

Interesting comment, Stefan Schumacher did not dope for the Olympics, it was CERA left in his system from the Tour de France.

I thought he said he did not use anything in the Tour. Sounds like a good lawyer to me

He is just covering all the bases. Standard operating procedure.

I would like to see information reported in the cycling media about how the TdF and Olympic cases are affected by the WADA code. I have posted my interpretation that since the Olympic offense occured before notification of the TdF positives there is no possibility of a lifetime ban and all cases should be lumped together. Schumacher's lawyer's statements would seem to cast doubt on my interpratation.

The point is, if it was 'left over in his system' he might argue against getting a lifetime ban for a second doping offence. However, doesn't the amount of time CERA stays in the sytem preclude this line of argument?

Whether for 2 years or longer, Schumacher wonb't be a loss to the sport. After all, if we include the 'prescription my mummy gave me' incident he begins to look like a serial doper.

I must have missed that "mummy" incident. What was it all about?

That's from the first non-negative test he had. Supposedly his Doctor Mummy prescribed the tainted substance. I wish I had a Mummy that could prescribe the right medicine :D
