Tour de France Stage 8: Mental

Stage 8 of the Tour de France yesterday (which I'm sure you watched) was pretty insane by cycling standards.

First of all it was the second day in a row which took place in the Alps with this second stage being approximately 90% uphill. And this is the Alps we're talking about here, not that little slope you've got to haul your fat ass up on your way to work.

Then there was the umpteen crashes, one of which threw Spanish rider David Arroyo, not just over his handle-bars, but over the side of the mountain as well. If it hadn't been for the large amount of foliage to catch him it may well have been the last we would have seen of Mr. Arroyo. As it happens though, he scuttled back up the side, jumped back on his bike and carried on riding. Albeit more slowly around the faster corners.

To top it all off were the fans and crap there were alot of them considering how high up in the damn mountains they were. This stage saw a lime green lycra swimsuited Borat running along side the Kazakstan team as they passed by, a couple of blond clowns (?) and the return of the Elvis dude sporting a sparkling black number.

Seriously, you don't know what you're missing.

Cow blood based performances.

(bovine-based hemoglobins)

Polypharmacy and life science on two wheels. Mental has little to do with sustainable power wattage.

Err... I have no idea what you just said.

All the riders use drugs. Graping it now?
see links for Tour Pharma history

The top GC contenders use blood transfusions--based upon human or cow blood spinners (red cells) Operation Puerto ring a bell? Ivan basso, Tyler Hamilton?

Last year's winner blew out his T/E ratio with a transfusion and overdose. (Landis)

The 1998 winner died at age 34. (Pantani)

Lance preferred calfs from Norway (Actovegin) He claimed it was for raod rash--execpt thre IOC banned after they realized both USPO & cross country skiiers both carried. Road rash is uncommon on snow. And that Lance lied.

Others use Hemopure, Oxyglobin or Polyheme.

Life Sciences on two wheels, that's the TDF.

A Pharmacy on Wheels (TDF doping scandal)

Playing Dirty (on massive daily drugs)

Cycling's Great Lie Never Likely to Die

1991 EPO overdosing of Team PDM

Cow blood drives the climbing tempo.

Ahh... now I see and yeah I agree it has been pretty bad of late. I know they've made moves to stop it, but as you point out, there are many, many ways to beat the system.

Only public relations myths have been amped up to fool the fans. Life science and steroid cattle doping, blood doping all remain at historic levels and gene doping is here too.

No moves have been made to stop steroids, trauma medicine nor blood doping. Nor gene doping. There are many reasons why doping will not and cannot be stopped. But money helps drive it hard.

Anti-doping improvements? None, nada, zippo.

Only the media cover stories and empty denials and silly talk of bio-markers and DNA testing.

It is all BS. Media spin to protect the advertisers who fund the dopers and doping.

90% of the drugs are undectable--and thise that are ARE NOT tested for. Very little time or analysis goes into a $200 urine sample. And most atheltes are NEVER tested anyway.

If a Tom Brady or a Nike Lance Pharmstrong does get drug busted (seven times for Armstrong)---the sponsors (promoter/league) loses the sample results and 'fixes it'.

Think of all TV sports as a Polypharmacy Theater Opera. The most talented people do not always get hired.

Well, yeah it's not like I'm naive about it. But I don't think Lance Armstrong is a drugs cheat. When you survive cancer like he did, why the heck would you want MORE chemicals inside you?

Ah yes--the power of media and Nike marketing.

Lance Pharmstong is a flaming drug cheat. He always was ever since his early US Olympic Training Camp days (3-5 injections per day) His TDF teams were always doped. Andreu, Hamilton, Heras, Joachim, Beltran, Padrnos, Landis have all been busted.

That's how lance got his Cancer (heavy doping) and WHY it was NOT detected early (female hormone choroinic gondatropin hCG injections) and why his Cancer spread so fast (insulin, hGH, testosterone, Deca Durabolin)

High dosages of weekly, daily steroids make thing grow FST. Muscles and tumors.

Lance was just one of four teammates to get dread diseases, the other three (Greg, Erich, Ernie), never recovered to race again.

Once Lance's hig dose chemo treatment ended he hopped on a plane and ran right back to steroid and blood doper physician Michele Ferrari.

Humpty Dumpty got a steroid doping do over---with a leaner (less muscle up top) body and more blood doping (cow blood & EPO).

No way Armstrong could win a TDF w.o his doping make over.

No way Armstrong could finish a stage w/o steroids and EPO at a minimum.

LIVE WRONG! Lance does.

ps: You bettet not read David Walsh's book From Lance to landis' It is doping dossier for Lance fans still in denial.
