Do Cyclists still use PEDs?

Is EPO, Peptide, steroid use down?
Is testing preventing professional cyclists from doping?

Like the Cycling News forum I wish bikeforums had a no-doping discussion policy.

Agreed. As I recall, things got so stupid on CN they just cut the 'comments' for main news articles. Don't know how such a policy could be enforced effectively here, but it would be worth a try.

It is interesting that the 'comments' on INRNG's blog tend to be self-policing in this regard.

I dunno - since pointless doping discussion is going to take place anyway, I think it would be a bloody terrific idea to have it all take place in one thread rather than polluting all other threads.

I think there should be a sub-forum for doping talk. I think it is interesting and relevant, but the people really obsessed with the topic try to inject it into too many other threads where it takes over.

As a cyclist, I can say I absolutely do not use PEDs.

Except for crank....I'm all about the crank.

Yes I like that about CN. I think it needs to be instituted here. No doping talk unless it's in a designated sub forum.

Any mods around listening?

Interesting. Not a complete ban, impractical and real hard to enforce but a subforum? I'm not an admin but I'll raise the idea.

Since we're on the bandwagon of whining about what can and can't be discussed, can we have a Lance Armstrong Obsessed sub forum as well? I mean, considering there's like 3 or 4 topics discussing the same thing, and is brought up into most other threads.

What over the counter drugs do you take? It is quite easy to take a PED as classified by WADA, and not know it.

Tom Danielson tests positive for testosterone. Will sit out Tour of Utah. B sample hasn't been tested yet. He says he'll have his supplements tested, has no idea how this result could have happened.

Let's hope TJ doesn't get too much estrogen for the Vuelta (like he did at the Tour)!

In those multi-week tours I'm sure there is a lot of "limp as a wet dishrag syndrome." So there probably is some use of an enhancer for the extracurricular activities.

They all stopped after 2006. Didn't you get the memo?
