after reading the cycling news article about the directions given to tyler, i started to wonder if "illness" or "injury" was feigned to stick with the drug schedule. im pretty sure they use it as an excuse not to work too hard in smaller races, like stars in the nfl preseason.

tyler's regimine also seems to mirror that of racers that are race-training for the tour.

At this point anything a rider does or doesn't do, did or didn't do, will be a sure sign of doping. - TF

A rider that is said to be ill may not be having a doping related issue but a rider that is having a doping issue will definitely be said to be ill.

There are a number of incidental tidbits about the practice in the new Pantani biography by Matt Rendell too.
