Sorry if this is in one of the other threads but Contador's sample also has trace plasitc elements of the same type that blood transfusion bags are made from. But I'm already over it as they all dope, so get over it.

So you have "di(2-ethylhexyl" in your blood like Contador? I'd get a new transfussion bag as it's not common outside of those bags.

What's so sad/funny/fail about this whole thing is that nobody even doubts that blood boosting is common among these athletes. But yet the focus is on a little bit of drug that was in his system, not the boosting because these "passports" are thought to be bulletproof. Well, hopefully this takes the shredder to the passports.

If you ate with the fork

Spanish plastic forks are made out of the same plastic used in Spanish doping bags. Duh. How do you know it was not from the fork?
So if you ate a steroid contaminated steak while leading the Tour, you could be in double the amount of trouble of a steak or the fork alone!

Could the plastic be from a water bottle? Could all of us bicyclists have traces of plastic in our systems?

Good point! and the Camelbak bladders are actually made from the stuff too - and in fact
were first prototyped using IV bags so I wonder if that could be part of the deal too?
