Thing with Cycling is, it seems to me, there’s a tighter link between PEDs and winning.

Lance was by far the most successful rider in his era, turns out he was the best cheat too.

But I don’t think you can say that about many other sports, eg I don’t think Man City were the best cheats/most cynical team this season, nor Federer etc etc.

Suppose Athletics is like cycling in this respect, look at those Spanish middle distance runner EOPed to the nines

Nah.... he'll disappear for weeks to lick his wounds and the magically re-appear saying he's been somewhere special for 3 months. (somewhere special being a fantastic place that nobody else knows about)

I've been very ill and spent the first quarter of the year at a retreat in Spain that you will not have heard of - you are such a f*****g asshole.

And you THM, surprised at you, thought you had half a brain.
