Leave it alone. It's unclear that this was drug related...
When I hear pulmonary embolism, two things immediately come to mind: neoplasm and virchow's triad (stasis/turbulence, endothelial damage, and hypercoagulability).
the vagabond said:Cyclingnews "would like" to offer condolences to VDB's family and friends? What's preventing you from just doing it?
There's nothing more crass than writing a sentence like that, in that derivative way. Either step up and offer condolences or not; don't say that you would like to. Saying you "would like to" does not express sympathy or offer condolences; it's insipid beyond belief.
Oldman said:A tragic, but seemingly inevitable end to his career. I just re-read much of the responses related to the VDB to Publish Blood Values thread and there wasn't much sympathy or respect reflected there.
Those responses will serve to remind me to restrain judgement of an individual while still having an opinion. Folks eager to classify a rider as unclean on the Clean Rider thread should eat this grain of salt as well...
