Just when I was singing his praises for being the Teflon Don of Italian Cycling a few weeks agowiz525 said:looks like one might be Rebellin....
Maybe he continued using CERA since he thought he could get away with it but he probably moved on to whatever the latest super-drug is.Dwayne Barry said:So what's he been doing since the test for CERA went public? It's not like he had a shabby spring campaign.
Other than Rebellin, Cancellara could very well be the other cyclist.mtbbmet said:Source says two cyclists, one weightlifter, and three track and feild. Of those, two were medalists and one of them is a male track and feild athlete who won gold.
There were 7 positives from 6 athletes.
Odds are that one of them won more than one medal if they were tested more than once.
My guess is it's Bolt.
Oooh, good job bringing it around to Armstrong. It is like that seven degrees of Kevin Bacon game.rook said:Can you imagine the conflict of interest if a government or an athlete paid the Olympic testing committee half a million dollar "donation" to assist with testing research? No way this would happen, but the UCI is all for accepting monetary donations from athletes. Face it. The UCI is corrupt.
Apperently only the one of the two cyclists that were positive medaled. So it can't be both Rebellin & Cancellara.MG537 said:Other than Rebellin, Cancellara could very well be the other cyclist.
Bolt wouldn't surprise me one bit. If they do bust him and strip him of his medals plus world records then this may turn out to be the biggest scandal since 1988 when another track athlete got stripped of his world records (both 9.79 in Seoul and the 9.83 he set previously at the world champ's) and gold medal.
Doesn't make sense since, IIRC, CERA has a long detection window, much longer than normal EPO.framed said:Maybe he continued using CERA since he thought he could get away with it but he probably moved on to whatever the latest super-drug is.
Or he could have though that Gerolsteiner's program was better and he wouldn't get popped. It wasn't until October that Schumacher's and Kohl's positives were announced. The Gerolsteiner boys might have thought they had a good thing going.Dwayne Barry said:Doesn't make sense since, IIRC, CERA has a long detection window, much longer than normal EPO.
He probably got caught out by gambling it would be out of his system for the Olympics once he was alerted to the test by Ricco's positive. Hindsight is always 20/20 but looks like he should have opted to stay home.
