Because I'm clueless about hairsamples in doping matters, or doping for all matters, I'm dying to know the result. I know the french are just trying to prove LA history w/ doping but how will this prove, if it shows positive, how recent the dope has been in his system? Can 1999 drugs still be in the hair?papisimo9807 said:Why would the most tested athlete in history be surprised by this?:aureola:
"The AFLD tested hair samples of 138 French soccer players, rugby players, track and field athletes and cyclists."MerlinAma said:"With this week's test, France's anti-doping agency was not only looking for drug use but also to send a message: Armstrong should not expect any favorable treatment.
The agency's chief, Pierre Bordry, made that quite clear, saying Armstrong "needs to know that he is like everyone else."
So it gave him the full treatment. Two samples — A and B — were taken not only of urine, which is standard, but also of blood and hair."
So lets see if "everyone else" is subjected to the same # af tests and the same "haircut".
I'll put odds on NO.
I don't care about "soccer players, rugby players, track and field athletes".den bakker said:"The AFLD tested hair samples of 138 French soccer players, rugby players, track and field athletes and cyclists."
How many times have the french anti doping staff tested Armstrong?
armpit? or does he shave that, too?uzziefly said:He's obviously subjected to more testing as his 24th test was done with this hair thing etc while some others only had 5 tests all year.
What happens if Armstrong has too short hair to be plucked now? Fingernails?
It must be somewhat frustrating for Lance I'm sure, although he knows he'd be subjected to this.
