So you are talking about more testing.Benotti69 said:well if you cant see how transparency cleans up the sport you're not trying. Weekly blood tests. Not difficult since most riders live in proximity to the south of Europe, Girona, Nice, Northern Italy and Tuscany. Values taken by and tested by an independent body and posted on a website. Paid for by teams.
the riders do not believe they are risking their lives by taking dope. If they did they wouldn't do it. They are happy to ***** about descents on a mountain in the Giro but not ***** about what they are being told to take by Docs and DSs
I would describe transparency as something else, but fair enough.
Maybe the quote below will put into context the levels of risk some athletes are prepared to take as far as doping.
"Dr. Bob Goldman, author of Death in the Locker Room: Drugs and Sports. Goldman told the Associated Press in 2003 that, over the years, he has asked groups of world-class athletes if they would take a magic pill that would let them win every competition for five years but then kill them. Consistently, more than half the athletes have said they'd take the pill"
More testing might catch more dopers, but there will still be plenty willing to take the risk.
