Hahaha EPO ... You crack me up .... you have the wierdes logical explanations for everything ... everything can be explained by doping :D
Oh well, I'm sorry ... but a guy that wouldn't send his children out in a downhill course or out on the roads on a bike, because it's too dangerous... but to fill up the body with chemicals to get big muscles and a boner is okey ... hahaha EPO... it's really not easy to take you seriously man .... but thanks for a good laugh :D

The riders were probably surprised there were doping controls in the race, not very common in Sentral and South America. No shock that they tested positive in my opinion.

Doesn't surprise me 12 got done here. Races like this and Colombia are known to have these problems anyway so i suppose it's an easy way for the UCI to say dope testing is working by actually testing properly at these races :D

> So what we can learn from this is that only the lesser riders dope while the pros are clean. That must be why the pros are so much better.

I don't say the pros are clean, but that logic doesn't really work. If you are a worse rider there is a bigger incentive to dope, especially in countries with less than bright outlook on the normal job market. You were training all your life for a goal and you are seeing it fall apart. Juicing doesn't seem that bad then, because you have nothing to lose. If a rider is good enough to make a career from cycling he has a lot more to lose from doping.

Good example is Alberto Gallego - "I will go to portugal to race and if I don't get a PCT/WT contract after that year I have to end my career". January 3rd next year *poof*

Now look at the GDP and the earning potential for most people in poorer countries. Not rolling the dice sounds stupid in that regard.

100% motorpacing. There is no other way in my opinion. Alone in that wind gaining two minutes on riders sharing duties. Maybe a bit of juice on top to round it out.

I didn't watch the stage, but I heard rumours that they didn't film him much, possibly because he was drafting behind a motorbike..?

Do you think Najar is nervous now?
