I get really excited by lace panties and a garter belt, but I guess if any of the above are what does it for you, we are different in significant ways.

What gets you most excited?
1) Stories about doping in cycling
2) Stories about doping or anything bad about Armstrong
3) Actual bike racing
4) A possible cleaner future of bike racing

Oh, and I'll also be excited when people realize that "talking about doping" is not the problem.
 
I think the question should have been, what do you come to the clinic for

1 to read and talk about doping - you know, the bits about people using peds.

2 to read gossip about Lemond Armstrong Landis and their families friends etc, read about present episodes of this story involving feds and trials, as well as discussing future scenarios regarding Armstrong in prison/ losing his victories, debating his mental state, is he or isnt he a sociopath, how much money does he have, what celebrities did he screw, what businesses does he own

Conclusion, an Armstrong sub forum.
 
High heels and red lipstick works for me.

I am frankly sick of hearing about doping and Armstrong. Time to move on. Hate Armstrong or love him move on. I would like to see the younger riders ride. I talked to an american racing in europe and he said doping has died out. that is in france. I would just like to see the riders race.

You could always stay out of the clinic. Especially if you don't want to hear about doping

This will refresh you Barrus. Less doping and US pros who do not know the effect of EPO. Brighter days.

We haven't seen any REAL racing since 1990. What's happened since is more akin to Bodybuilding on bikes. Just a different set of freaks.

+1

"Bodybuilding on bikes" - great line, and unfortunately reminiscent of the WWF - with the drama queens, primadonnas and caricatures.

although, the 2010 Giro was a great spectacle - though, who knows where it stands in the doping context?
 
Can we have another one? :(

"Which of these do you believe in most"

-That the effects of doping are negligible on racing
-That only suspended cyclists dope
-That the biopassport has drastically cut the extent to which professionals use PEDs.

Whether you like it or not, doping is closely linked to racing, if you want to believe otherwise, dig a bigger hole to bury your head in and don't feel offended by people who do acknowledge the problem.

You should also add: none of the above.

Because I do not believe that the biopassport has drastically cut the extent of doping, it just changed the manner in which they dope

Not if it's a trollpoll, each question has to be loaded and there's none which make any rational sense.


Returning to my original thread, I certainly wasn't trying to 'troll'. I have, for a long time, thought that a certain section of cycling 'fans' follow it for the doping rather than the racing. There are far more recent posts about Contador on this forum than the WCs, for example. And if the 'doping follower' exists, then is there a sub-species of 'Armstrong Only' doping followers? (BikingBernie on Bike Radar is an example).

It was a genuine question. Are fans getting more interested in the soap opera than the racing?

All of the above is an option which is required! Seeing a dirty spanish blood doper go down is always good fun!!!
