...possibly more on topic is this article in Velonews providing insight about recent testing procedures by WADA and a look inside a testing lab by a rider:

When this story first broke months ago, I did a little research into it. The message boards referenced in the articles are still up, but the postings in question have been removed.

This screen name Faster1 was used on a couple of message boards, and in his profile, he stated he was a track cyclist. Someone either did an IP trace, or found another web board with the same screen name and a profile listing his real name. Other posters on the board also knew who he was in real life.

He was not asking for information about EPO on these boards, but instead professing to know all about it, and if anyone had any dosing questions etc, to PM him, and he would tell them how much to take etc..

There were some other forums where people he knew and rode with begged him to come clean and respond to them, but he never did. Apparently changed his home phone number etc. I can't find the pages anymore, but I think the guys at www.stolenunderground.com have them archived, they were posted there for a while.

It's no surprise to me that he got caught, I wonder if the initial message boards are what drew attention to him in the first place...

I would hope that the gentle readers here would find the information about the tests involved and the process of testing more interesting than Mr. D'Antoni's individual experience.

It is easy to pile on, and we have seen that backfire on the pile-onners in the cases of Brandt and others already in just this year alone. Irregardless of his guilt or innocence, the process of testing revealed in the article is most illuminating.

And with the exception of the Chemical Anarchy posts, most of the posts and links relevant to the individuals case can be found here:

If JD is in fact faster1, and that is not proven fact, the most incriminating post was to the elitefitness site.

Hmmm, I tested the link when I posted it, but it's not working now. Go to www.cyclingforums.com and search on user name markfarnsworth. He posted the info.
