Of course I was not saying there was none, just saying it's a big country and easy to be unavailable for a day or two (without having to go to a remote Island somewhere). As far as doping in 2010 we all know everyone stopped in 2006 so what are you talking about, eh?D-Queued said:Sorry to argue, as this is all quite entertaining, but I thought I should pick a nit here.
Yes, there is OOC testing in Canada. I have been one degree of freedom removed from two separate cases in two different sports within the past year(ish).
One was clean.
And, oops, the other was a cyclist I believe.
Darn. Dirtiest sport. Even in Canada, eh.
So, yes, if a doping positive is the definitive discriminator, then Ben apparently must have been a cyclist.
And, if he wasn't, then Shep's BS about his first and only time experience with EPO along with GJ's crap about being too emotionally distraught to show up for doping control, when put together - along with Ryder and Michael and, and... make Ben look like he was in kindergarten playing in a sandbox all by himself.
Certainly, we could characterize him as a non-cycling aberration. Just like Reefer Rob.
As for the entertainment, I would suggest never going so far as to claim that there was no doping in 2010, even if none was detected.
But, please continue!!
