    Doping Thought

    This may be a far out thought, but something I've wondered about.
    I do believe there are drug problems in cycling, not trying to say there isn't.
    You see fans along the route, throw water onto the riders. Would it be possible for some of this water to be laced with a drug, that would get into the cyclists system and show up in a drug test?

    SUre it is possible. Unlikely though that drugs would be absorbed that way through the skin. Kind of random, don't you think?

    Back in the old days riders would take water bottles from fans. Those days are gone.
    Not too much to say here

    Just something I always think about when I see the fans dumping water on the riders.
