From Bike Pure
Heartbreaking Phone tap:
01/0409, Mantova pharmacist Guido Nigrelli re: growth hormone:
Ballan: “Is that G?”
Nigrelli: “Yes, of course.”
Ballan: “But how do you take it?”
Nigrelli: “By mouth.”
Ballan: “Have you got some?”
Nigrelli: “It’s being delivered on Tuesday.”

20/04/09
Nigrelli: “How many have you done?”
Ballan: “This is the fifth one.”
He then adds a little later: “This is how I’ve done EPO...”

The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine.
