Would it be fair to say that had Root, above, tested positive in this instance he would have rec'd less of a ban than he ultimately got? I see another cyclist on the USADA website got a 4 year ban for a second violation.....

Seems that Kayle LeoGrande has finally earned his lifetime membership, although nothing up at USADA.
I tweeted about this, but haven't gotten confirmation of the positive or what it was for. Waiting to hear from a few journalist friends who've made inquiries, too.

Hmm, so we can't embed tweets w/ whatever this forum is built on?

The original image was too big, but if you change it to "small" the image fits within the software limits.

From his FakeBook

Hello out there, I hope everyone is having an amazing Friday and feeling spritely awaiting the weekend. As cyclists, we have an agreement as racers, to be responsible for what we ingest and put in and on our bodies. There are a lot of banned substances we need to be mindful of. I know this, and I am fully aware of the rules and I respect them. However, I took a supplement the night before the 2017 Dana Point Grand Prix for personal reasons and not a PED to boost my performance on the bike in any way what so ever. I was unaware of its true ingredients and It came back positive for a banned substance.
I take 100% responsibility for my actions and choices. I accept the consequences for this and my disqualification, and
I am returning my winnings to the race promoters.
Having a past doping offense,
I acknowledge the impact and damage my actions caused my team, fellow cyclists, the race promoters and owners.
I feel badly about Losing their trust after all the time I spent building it up. I will miss all the fun I had racing with these great athletes and friends. I take the above actions in an effort to restore trust in me and my integrity as my word and for this sport I will always love.
I am in a happy place in my life and have lots to be grateful for! Most importantly, my children and my Fiancée! Cycling is and always will be a part of my life and lifestyle. Racing has been a major part of my life since I raced as a jr. At the age of 13. I hold my head high knowing I did my best as an athlete and I have the utmost respect for all I competed against.
"If there is anything you are incomplete about or need to say to me to be complete, please reach out to me directly" I am a reasonable human being, being approachable and have absolutely nothing to hide. Life is short, make it count and be happy :)

May 3. 2017

USADA announced today that Scot Harvey, of Glendora, Calif., an athlete in the sport of cycling, has accepted a four-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation related to his refusal to provide a sample.

Harvey, 47, refused to provide a sample as requested by a doping control officer during an out-of-competition test on March 20, 2017.

LeoGrande... seems to be some contradictions. Still lying at his confession of all things.

There are a lot of banned substances we need to be mindful of. I know this, and I am fully aware of the rules and I respect them. However, I took a supplement the night before the 2017 Dana Point Grand Prix for personal reasons and not a PED to boost my performance on the bike in any way what so ever. I was unaware of its true ingredients and It came back positive for a banned substance.
Today in CN;

The US Anti-Doping Agency today announced that Kayle Leogrande has been banned for eight years after testing positive for seven different banned substances in a doping control taken at this year's Dana Point Grand Prix.

Leogrande, 40, was found positive for the anti-estrogen drug raloxifene, four Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (ostarine, RAD140, LGD4033 and andarine), ibutamoren (a growth hormone-like factor), and GW1516 sulfone (the 'exercise in a pill' drug).
I just can't even....

I know...

Words can't describe how stupid this guy is.....
 
Clearly Leogrande is not your typical pro on a discreet program. I suspect being found positive for ... 7 ... substances is some kind of subliminal cry for help.

Interestingly a case like this is something of an argument for legalizing PEDs -- wouldn't it be better to supervise intake rather than just gobbling down/injecting/rubbing in anything you can get your hands on?

7 substances, 2nd offense and still only 8 years ?

That's a light ban compared to what it arguably should have been.
His continued lying about his "supplement" is what should have put him over the top for a lifetime ban.

I'm pretty sure that there's never been and never will be a supplement that uses "GW1516" as a hidden ingredient.

Maybe I'm wrong, what do I know.... :rolleyes:

In this specific case, if this is an act of desperation then I would argue that legitimising and supervising his self-abuse would not be constructive to his long-term well-being.

All that does is move the line in the sand. People will then simply step over the new line.

How exactly will that make things better?

So you are suggesting something like stock, modified, and supermodified classes for bike racing?

Then there surely must be a case for riding with motors as well. Maybe just limit motors to 200 watts?

No rules cycling! You get to decide individually where you want to go. And how fast!

USA NorCal rider busted for clomiphene. 6 months ban. Apparently he was using it as prescribed by his doc and "forgot" it would last in his system. There is no mention of why his doc was asking him to take it - strange drug.

https://www.usada.org/john-schiefer-accepts-doping-sanction/
The article mentions that the prescription was "completed", so it was probably for fertility. It's a common fertility drug for both men and women, although off label for men, and is generally only taken for short periods when that is the purpose.
