I too am 63 and admit that I'm a dope.
I'm almost 67 but not a racer and admit I use Hammer gel or Gu during every ride. I won't pee in anybody's cup.
I guess my career is washed up too.

He agreed to take any random test when he got the license and then refused for reasons known to him only. This is so sad that he had to take PEDs for age bracket state level championships competition. If it was sildenafil as some of the remarks indicated he had a list of banned substances available for his use. What is the shame is taking the test and listing your prescription drugs and if you screwed up take the loss and move on. If we want a clean sport the sport's base of racers like the age bracket and Cat competitors need to be held to the standards just like a professional should be.

I've mentioned before that I got some EPO when I was doing chemo. EPO (Aranesp is what I got) is really wonderful stuff. I fully understand why competitive cyclists would want to use it. I'd love to get more, except I'm afraid it might kill me. I'd love to take T, except I'm afraid of the side effects, like prostate cancer. I guess I'm too much of a wimp to take PEDs.
