    Heard a fair bit about this movie and seems to be getting great review, although I have it on my to watch list. Sounds like the filmmaker was hit in the arse with a rainbow when the story blew up bigger than he could have imagined. Interesting interview Lance did with the filmmaker on his Foward podcast. Anyone watched it yet?

  3. Hajo Seppelt is back. Part 1 of his doping in athletics exposé want to air last year, and his follow-up documentary was aired on ARD in Germany last night and has tonnes more evidence of systematic doping in Russia and Kenya. Russia Seppelt received a stash of audio recordings, of Russian national team athletes, incl. Olympic Champion Savinova, talking about how they'd prepared for races. Informant delivered a bunch of Russian 'athlete profiles', with up to 80% of whereabouts not submitted. Audio file of IAAF tester calling an athlete to arrange a suitable date/time test. Spee
  4. On the subject of, predominantly, doping allegations, in consultation with the Moderators we have agreed on the following: Following on from some recent issues and knowing full well that whatever we choose to do will be criticised by some sectors. The choices as I see them are: Allow everything: to be fair and equitable this would leave nothing or no one out of bounds. This becomes unworkable for me as the site owner and for the moderators. Continue as we are: this also seems to be unworkable as those with a bias, see the way we try and moderate to be always to the detriment of t
  5. As triathletes we often get the mickey taken out or us from cyclists for a variety of reasons. The reliant on numbers, compression socks, jumping on every new bandwagon and on it goes. I've always thought fight fire with fire, and hit cycling back, and to be fair there is a good argument to suggest cycling and cheating are lifelong bedfellows. The nature of the sport of cycling lends itself to it. the person who saves the most watts wins and takes the glory at the last moment. Where as triathlon came out of a test to see who was the fittest. Sure we miss out on some of the bravery, tactic
  6. I hope this doesn't break any rules or stir the pot too much as I am genuinely interested in seeing what people think about this. This study came out this week: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0078702 It is a peer reviewed, statistically sound study seemingly conducted rigorously. The outcome is 1 in 7 age group athletes is using some sort of illegal physical enhancement. This number seems really, really high to me. Do you think this is accurate? Is there any form of anti-doping control for age groupers? Do you believe doping has become more or
  7. The optimist in me thinks that cycling may finally be winning the war on PED's . The pessimist thinks that the cyclists are getting better at hiding their drug use . The following is from the West Australian newspaper. http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/sport/a/-/other/18586890/no-doping-cases-from-tour-de-france/ No riders tested positive for doping at the Tour de France, the International Cycling Union said on Tuesday, after the complete analysis of 622 samples. The testing program included 113 urine samples tested for EPO and 15 for steroids. In blood analysis, 22 samples were te
  8. Two of the biggest names in sprinting Asafa Powell and Tyson Gay have failed drug tests. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-07-15/powell-and-gay-fail-drug-tests/4819574

    Not Normal?

    Has anyone downloaded and read "Not Normal? An insight into doping and the 21 biggest riders from LeMond to Armstrong to Evans" ? http://www.joomag.com/magazine/alternativ-editions-not-normal/0269766001370594539 The book examines mountain rides and labels performances across an index of suspicion versus believability. They do this by estimating the power for each climb. I am wondering if it is a interesting read.

    The Padova investigation has been running in Italy for quite a while now. The Italian police were following the money being paid to Ferrari for doping. These details were published last night by Corriere della Serra in Italy, but here's an English account from Cyclingnews: Some of Scimone's clients apparently include Kolobnev, Scarponi, Menchov, Petrov, Lancaster, Davis, Grillo, Marcato, Karpets, Mazzanti, Perez Cuapio. Would that be Brett Lancaster and Allan Davis??
