No tainted beef.

Another one bites the dust.

I'm kind of disappointed in the opinions of the other cyclists quoted. The problem isn't the pursuance of stopping doping. The problem is that doping is a serious problem that needs to be stopped for this sport to survive.

As seen in other sports, all doping ever accomplished was that more people did it. They had to dope to be able to compete with those that were already doing it. So everyone is engaging in a potentially life threatening behavior just so they can compete at the elite levels, and everyone that doesn't simply doesn't match up.

There has to be a point where the need to be faster doesn't also end your life and career as fast as it came.

I try to avoid veal because of the cruel conditions associated with how it is produced.

One method to avoid tainted food may be that all riders eat the same meal in the same mess hall. If you're found doping, then you can't blame your 'tainted beef'.
