    SO I need to ask a question.

    The last 2 years TdF have been rocked by BIG names getting nabbed in the tour. What is strange to me about this is that shouldnt the BIG names have the best cheating capacity? Yet from what I understand both Landis' and Vino's cheating was very easy to detect.

    So I guess my question is why are the big names, with all the big money getting nabbed using the simplest and easiest to detect drugs and doping?

    They are the most tested.

    They are the most arrogant. (And they aren't very smart.)

    Ask yourself - how did they get to be a big name?

    Most tested does not explain using rudimentary cheating techniques. I mean Test for Landis and wrong blood for Vino. Thats rudimentary stuff. When you have the money and resources to purchase a ferrari, you dont use a ford.

    As for Landis, Testosterone is easy to mask from the ratio test. It's only when you mess up the masking and fail the ratio test (and then get the isotope test) that you've got a problem.
