Cat 4s Doping Now !?!?

I snipped this from the thread listed below. Jeesh !!! This guy is meesing himself up just to try to compete at a Cat 4 !?!?

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
If you've been on this board for any period of time - which you (madtrack) have - then you know the major f'ups RealGains could have helped me avoid regarding test/EQ/turanibol etc. a couple of years ago....not only would I have saved money on peds, I'd of saved money on physical therapy too after - surprise, surprise, I blew-out/strained/tore a tendon after I more then doubled my squat and tried transfering that to the kilo (for awhile I thought I had jumped from a 4 to a 2....till my body reminded me I was a 4)

I'm still recovering....my threshold is about 225 for example, yup 225...that beats the 160ish that it was last winter....in TT's last season I couldnt even put out the power to get my HR up to the previous 168-172bpm that it would get in TT's...instead 155ish...I didnt even bother with crits...why pay 30 bucks to get dropped in < a lap?

My theory on why I'm taking so long to recover, is that I am fairly new to being fit (< 5 years -fittest in my life) and lets just say if 40+ masters races wasnt so damn hard, I could race in it, so getting back to that hard fought fitness level (mid packer cat IV) is proving long and slow.

threshold of 225? I don't think so.

I heard a rumor that people sometimes tell lies on the internets.

I've said it before: If you need dope to beat me, you shouldn't even bother getting out of bed. Really, what's the freakin' point?

yeah the only way anyone would need to dope cat4 is if it is prescribed to sort out a real
medical condition.

otherwise there is no point.

cycling at that level is about time in the saddle.

you want to dope ? get to be a cat 1 first without dope, then don't get caught.

that is the only time you'd see a difference vs putting in real actual miles. slobs with low miles
don't get upgraded for a reason...dope won't help

His theory is wrong. He kinda sucked all natural. Funny no mention of winning any races doped either.

I'm with CastIron. If you need the juice to beat ME, you should consider ritual suicide.

No doping stories surprise me, after a bunch of fat and lazy rec softball players were found juicing in my area, just to up thier home-run totals.

Anyone doping as a Cat 4 has some serious self esteem issues. Probably has or had other drug addictions as well. It is pretty sad, really.

I actually find this to be kind of hilarious. It's got to at least make it as a SNL or South Park skit

I'm pleased to say that my "naturally aspirated" left leg is as strong as both of his were last winter...combined.

What a f###ing p_ssy.

He has me worried if mid packer cat IV takes hard fought fitness.

It was posted here last week and it's pretty fascinating to read. When I have more time I'm going to search and see how many posters from here I can find there(so far one).
