A Gran Fondo has the resources to drug test? I'm impressed.

Sorry wasn't referring to him in particular but just have to question what's the point? To the person that I know it was said to me in confidence and now, based on his riding this year, may are asking me what is he doing different to make him so fast (many know that I have been directing his training this year), puts me in a tough spot.

I would unfriend him. It's amazing inconsiderate to put you in that situation. I was in that situation, and while I didn't go totally public with it, I kicked him off the team and never rode with him again.

As you can expect it is a little more complicated than I outlined as he is also a friend (and a really good guy) just making some bad decisions in my opinion...

That Gran Fondo was a Master's Worlds qualifier, yes? Meaning, UCI rules and dope testing, yes?

Anyway... can't say I'm surprised. I've long said, do the math. If a rider will pay $X thousand for bikes (multiple) and $X thousand for wheels (multiple) and $X hundred a month for coaching and massages and race travel and whatnot... then a small co-pay for some medical assistance is not so out of the question.

We had a 60 some year old Cat 5 down here refuse a random drug test and get sanctioned. They actually ran him down at home for a random test.

The Florida Clean Ride Fund is helping to make this happen much more.
Best of luck all you PED users.
