So because the system is not perfect you think it should be abandoned altogether?

What would happen if there was no WADA or NADOs?

Juniors? I shudder to think of the consequences.

Not at all, obviously there has to be some attempt made to rid the sport of doping. I'm just making the observation of how futile it appears at times. It's a complicated situation....you've got pro riders with non existent job security and no power base, teams who struggle with continuity in sponsorship, race owners losing money (except for ASO), a fed up public who laughs at us, yet enjoys the beauty of the sport and a messed up situation with WADA and NADO's who can't seem to provide any clarity or consistency of enforcement, witness this joke going on with Froome.

And yet we're gonna bust every damn old guy out there!
 
U.S. Triathlon Athlete Michael Meacham Accepts Sanction for Anti-Doping Rule Violation

Meacham, 42, tested positive for methenolone and its metabolites, as well as exogenous boldenone, following an out-of-competition urine sample he provided on August 19, 2017.
During USADA’s investigation into the circumstances of the case, Meacham also admitted that, beginning in November 2013, he had periodically used additional prohibited substances. But because of the substantial assistance provided that led to the discovery and bringing forward of a criminal offense, Meacham’s one-year period of ineligibility was reduced from four years.

Just noticed that the title of this thread is “idiot”, does it need to be changed?

David LeDuc, 62, tested positive for the presence of a steroid of exogenous origin, recombinant human erythropoietin (“rhEPO”) and amphetamine, a prohibited stimulant, as the result of an in-competition urine sample collected on September 6, 2013 at the Masters Road National Championships in Bend, Ore.

How I hate this sport. Let me count the ways...:rolleyes:
Did he return to racing?

USADA has given a four-year ban to a masters cyclist, Steven Strickler, after the Californian tested positive under USA Cycling's amateur anti-doping programme. The 58-year-old was tested at the Dana Point Grand Prix 55+ race and returned a sample that was positive for an exogenous anabolic agent on April 29, 2018.

Strickler’s suspension began on June 8, 2018, and his results from April 29, 2018 were annulled.
https://www.usada.org/steven-strickler-receives-doping-sanction/
Strickler, 58, was subject to testing due to his membership in USA Cycling, which maintains the RaceClean Program that works to fight doping in the sport of cycling. The goal of the RaceClean Program is to increase testing and education to provide greater doping deterrence and is executed through member funding, donations, and local association partnerships.

Strickler tested positive for an anabolic agent from an in-competition urine sample collected on April 29, 2018, at the Dana Point Grand Prix. His urine sample was analyzed using a specialized test that differentiates between anabolic-androgenic steroids naturally produced by the body and prohibited anabolic agents of external origin. Anabolic agents have powerful performance-enhancing capabilities and can give an athlete an unfair advantage over fellow competitors.

The use of any exogenous anabolic agent is prohibited at all times under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, the United States Olympic Committee National Anti-Doping Policies, and the International Cycling Union Anti-Doping Rules, all of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

Strickler’s four-year period of ineligibility began on June 8, 2018, the date his provisional suspension was imposed. In addition, Strickler has been disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to April 29, 2018, the date his positive sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
