I remember when it wasn't to difficult to go.see a doctor to get steroids.

I knew a couple of blokes that did it that way. Walked into the quack said I want to get on the juice to get big.

It may be that WADA places such things on their under active consider list at some stage, but that is not our direct concern.
There is nothing to say you can't use such therapies and continue to ride a bike. Just you can't race while doing so. Make a choice.


Hmm, opinion of someone looking up from the youthful side of middle age I think?
But.. maybe there should be 'pure' and 'theraputiuc' classes in a race? One class for the lucky who can keep racing as nature intended and one for folks who need stuff like testosterone and steroids to keep moving.

If you need steroids and testosterone to keep moving, somehow I'm not sure sure racing would be a good idea.

They are the rules. If the rules change, fine. Until then, make a choice.

There are limited number of riders in older masters age divisions as it is, why on earth would we want to split them further?

I beg to differ. The fitness and energy requirement of a classical soloist or orchestral player can be incredible. It's analogous to the largely under-estimated table tennis and badminton players at the elite level.
Bianchi, Ridley, Montague, GT, Garmin and All things Apple :)
