    There ya go then - I'm sure there were many more also administered by the UCI - just goes to show that NOT failing a test does not mean someone didn't dope...

    Yep, the same UCI that was bought off by Lance and Co. The same UCI willing to turn a blind eye to what was really going on not just among Motorola/USPS/Discovery/Radio Shack, but other teams as well. The UCI couldn't stand a black eye & ruining the international popularity (i.e. money) that Lance and Co. brought to cycling, and the Tour in particular.

    Pat McQuaid is a joke. The UCI needs to be gutted ... time to hit the 'reset' button.

    The USADA investigation was not an investigation into doping of cyclist just things related to LA and USPS so there would be no need look into any female athletes unless they were linked to LA or USPS.

    I am sure the female peleton is cleaner just like I am sure less females go around tagging private property, stealing cars, etc....

    I live in an area in SoCal with a lot of roadies. I ride everyday, and while i no longer race, i can hang for a bit with the fast crowd.

    I was going up this hill and in front of me was a gal on a Bianchi, she was ripped, blood vessels popping out of her calves. She was not going all that fast, i passed her and said, "on your left".
    I was pretty far from her:deal
    She chased me down the other side of the hill, caught up to me at the light, screaming at me, you just had to pass me, you think you are so fast, blah blah blah. She veers towards me and spits on me. Really.:eek1

    The light turned green, she is in a track stand, taunting me to go. I just looked at her and shook my head.

    Roid rage:lol3. I just dropped her as i past her, for her to come up at a light again and begin her tirade.

    I have seen her since, she acts embarrassed.

    Yes, Tammy got popped; shockingly: Steriods. So did Jeanson, EPO. Years and years ago, a local (NorCal) racer that was on the '84 Olympic team, Cindy Olivarri, got busted for 'roids. I knew her and it was obvious something was going on. She was interviewed a coupla years later in a national bike magazine and stated that besides the health problems she was suffering as a result of doping, the worst thing was not knowing if she would've been good enough without the juice. It was an edifying read. I wonder how she's doing now.

    There are a number of current pro-females that are probably juicing but as I stated before, "Failing a drug test is the same as failing an IQ test." As long as the rider sticks to The Program, the likely hood of getting popped is pretty small.

    I know a current female Olympic class road cyclist and we've spoken at length about doping in the peloton and who she suspects is on the juice. There are a number of riders that made a jump from regional class to international class in mere months that are suspect. Eventually, it's likely they'll get caught but in the meantime...:bluduh

    Neither did George Hincapie and he admitted he doped his entire career up to about 6 years ago.

    You still don't get it do you, never failing a test does not mean someone didn't dope, it just means they were a step ahead of the testers.

    Seems like everyone at the front for 10+ years was on the juice and the only reason we know is because the fastest losers want to sing. This is the definition of Witch-hunt. Carry on.

    No, we've known it for years because pretty much everyone else at the front has already been caught.
