"I began hearing about EPO two to three years ago through the grapevine in running circles," said John Treacy, a silver medalist in the 1984 Olympic marathon. "The story was there was this new drug that would take over from blood doping, and that it was much better."

Cheers
Using EPO is blood doping. Is there a timeline of when the different blood doping methods came into use in the peloton? Including when they were outlawed?

Things never change on this forum.


The question of "When was EPO introduced to CYCLING" will never come to the mind of anybody. Because you just don't like cycling. For you it's just one race, three at best.

You are just elitists...
