you can count the number of drug cheats who cough up (excuse the pun) on the fingers of one hand. Deny everything seems to be the party line, and very few break that line. I agree with McGee's rationale that you can do that amount of training and racing without chemical assistance (if you have competed in any endurance sports you discover what the body can achieve) but i dont think thats the issue. The majority of performance enhancing drugs seem to aid/speed up recovery therefore enabling the athlete the ability to continue training/racing hard at a higher level or for longer. Nobody's saying everyone's on drugs. However, McGee's asertation that people in the 'inner circle' of cycling know whose clean and who isnt, needs some supporting evidence. If hes so sure then why does he name the names, or are the testing procedures not good enough to back him up?
"allegedly" Millar was caught bang to rights, but we'll see. I hope not, but the team is hardly new to drug scandal. The McGee article was v interesting, and your natural inclination is to believe him.
Be nice if the sport was such that you didnt need 'shit stirrers' to put their 2 pennys worth in. Think Paul Kimmage was accused of the same practice by Robert Millar, so perhaps we need SOMEONE asking awkward questions?
