But it seems that Menotropin is a fertility drug: to quote from drugbank.com, "Menotropins contains follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) purified from the urine of postmenopausal women." (What people will do to get a competitive advantage ...) To me that sounds more like a testosterone precursor, the LH stimulating the Leydig cells to produce testosterone. Any endocrinologists out there who can shed light on how the stuff works?

And when one door closes, another opens.

Velonews says that this creates an opening for Cavendish on Astana...

Yes. Very interesting. The saga continues.

The seemingly balanced article also points out some downsides to that end for him. AG2R and Total Energies are the only other teams left with roster space and automatic Tour invites.
