Today was our district championship age graded crit. I was a non descript missed the break 7th place. After it was over, I heard someone official sounding shouting my number and pointing at me. I wondered what I could have done wrong when he told me I had to report to doping control as first, second, and seventh from our race were selected for testing. Since I didn't really know I was seventh, it confirmed my placing.
I was escorted to the control area where they asked for my id. Since I was in a skin suit and my car was a mile or so away, my id was a good distance off. My escort wasn't too keen on the distance so just took a photo of me with my name written on a piece of paper, mug shot style.
There was a bunch of paper work to establish my name, address, doctor, coach, prescription s and otc drugs ive taken, then I had to give a urine specimen with my usada escort watching. Trying to pee after a crit was a challenge.
It was honestly nerve wracking. I know I'm clean, but had to declare a number of allergy and asthma meds I'm prescribed to take. The process for getting results is 10 weeks.
It took about an hour to complete, some of it due to how long it took to provide a specimen but most of it due to paperwork. It's pretty neat to have insight on the process now.
