Sentjens positive for EPO

Page 3 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
I could barely watch the TV program.

Interestingly, Sentjens knew all about the number of units he had to take, but was unable to name the price he paid for the EPO at the pharmacy. Even if he went out buying it so recently.
Would he be so tense asking for EPO at the counter that he just gave the pharmacist his wallet to take the required amount out?
Anyway, he claimed he took like 6 or 8 shots only, and never got to ride better because of his mental distress, and, there it is again, his illness.

I think Landis came across more sincere when he denied than Sentjens when he admitted.
Sorry if this forum has made me a cynic.

At the end of each show, guest take each other on in a "bike race". Basically a spinning bike which drives a little rider on a velodrome.
Sentjens was beat by a chess player. Speed skaters and Cyclists tend to ace that game, it's all about rpms, not about power.

Thank you for that!

I have to admit - I have found Sentjens story a stretch.
He would be the unluckiest Pro in the world if he got caught the very first time he decided to use PED's - I wish I had that much faith in the system.

I am not doubting his fragile health or state of mind - just the part of how he used for the first time and how he acquired the EPO.
I hope he uses the time to get his life back in order.

Well, at least he announced to retire. That part seems most sincere. Quite a difference from the "I'll kick everyone's **** in 2 years".
Perhaps he went into the program's supervisor's advice and shot himself up with more EPO than he was supposed to. Or messed up his microdosing/water drinking. after all, it was a surprise test.

In the end, it comes down to this : one less doper. One more exposed case of admitted use, and the signal that people do get caught, while sometimes not even getting a good result for it.
