  4. Some of you have probably seen this on GCN earlier in the week. Just wanted to share so that you can turn the conversation on its head at the next braai when someone brings up how bad cycling is in terms of doping. It always bothered me that things like crossfit never had any doping scandals, surely a portion of those guys "Juice". Glad to see they made the list

Including, I kid you not: Colour coded water bottles MucOff soaps and lubes Warm down after a race Buying tyres a year in advance An apartment at work for the mechanics to work late Marks on the top of the saddle at 4cm and 15cm from front Each rider having a bag for wet weather gear
  10. Following Rourke Croeser’s positive tests for EPO and Phentermine, he has subsequently been stripped of his title for the 2015 Lesotho Sky. This judgment sees his team mate Max Knox also losing his title. The title for the 2015 race therefore goes to Matthys Beukes and Philip Buys. We appreciate the spirit in which these riders and other elite competitors approached the race. Click here to view the article

  13. UK Anti-Doping chief Nicole Sapstead admits to struggling to contain an issue that is rife in lower-level sport What is less understandable, perhaps, is doping in amateur sport; the Middle-Aged Man in Lycra who dopes to win a club race in front of one man and his dog; the 18-year-old on a semi-pro domestic team doping to win the junior national 10-mile TT. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/drugsinsport/12160508/Doping-culture-that-is-threatening-to-ruin-British-amateur-sport-could-be-worse-than-anyone-realises.html Seems to becoming the norm in amateur ranks where it is believed that the chances of getting tested are minimal

  15. Banned cyclist to collect huge damages payout by Agency Staff, February 02 2016, 06:00 Agency Staff February 02 2016, 06:00MADRID — The Spanish government has been ordered to pay more than €720,000 in damages to former cyclist Roberto Heras for his reversed suspension for doping in 2006-08. Spain’s national court in Madrid said in its decision that the amount of €724,904.86 corresponded to what Heras could have earned during his two-year suspension. After testing positive for the banned hormone EPO in September 2005 after the Vuelta a Espana, Heras had his victory in the race stripped and was banned for two years by the Spanish cycling federation, causing him to retire. The ban was subsequently overturned in the Spanish courts in 2012 due to irregularities in the screening of his urine test. Judge Berta Santillan Pedrosa ruled the Spanish government was responsible for the error and liable to compensate Herras. Lawyers for the state have until next Monday to lodge an appeal. The cyclist and his company, which manages his image rights, lodged their case against the state in January last year, claiming more than €1m in compensation to offset losses caused by the sanction. The decision is another legal setback in the fight against doping in Spain, which has often been accused of being soft on drugs in sport.
