remember, corticosteroids, cortisone, anti-inflammatoris, corticoids, this class, they WERE ALWAYS AROUND!!!JRanton said:I was just about to post the same thing.
That's the most damning thing I've read on Sky (although I think Digger/Dim have referred to this method of losing weight/retaining power earlier in this thread?)
Technically speaking they aren't breaking any rules but it obviously goes completely against the spirit of them. The funny thing is that Sky have claimed they hardly ever use TUE's. A journalist or two should really look into that.
ceteris paribus, all things being equal. This existed BEFORE, supposedly the anecdote, I reckon apocryphal, Ceccho, Claudio Cechhini gave Riis about 10 kg to lug up a long ascent.
And then Riss drops ~15lbs. Riis, not Riss. he drops the ~15lbs, and even tts better and rides gc.
So what has come into cycling, and other sports, beyond cortisone? see: Anna Ivanovic. with Wigans and Froome, Ivanovic is one of the calling cards.
maybe Djokovic too.
What has entered sports?
ofcourse, like all drugs, different people will have different responses. I actually dont buy the Armstrong was a good responder theory. I think p'raps like Riis, he just had the best doctor, and the most comprehensive suite of pharmaceuticals, indeed, a peripatetic cyling pharmacy.
