The doping problem has only two possible solutions that I can see now.

First, legalize it, don't criticize it. The problem here is that some crazies will allways push the envelope and over-dose. Results -- serious illnesses and deaths. In fact, this already happens (but not counting El Pirate, no big stars have scumbed yet). Another problem is that good cyclists will get beat by lesser talents willing who are desparat and williing to risk their health or life.

Second, reverse the burden of proof. That is, make every top cyclist prove he is clean by submitting to 52 weekly tests a year, year in and year out. Hell daily test is that is necessary. Indeed, if the cyclist want us to believe that they are real athletes putting in real athletic performances and want our real dollars in their real pockets, then I do not think this is unreasonable invasion of privacy. And, who has the "right" to cheat and rake in big bucks by duping the public anyhow?
