Aug. 4th and 5th: Cycling Summit (Floyd's coach will be here)
First saw this info on the Idaho Outdoors site:
And apparently there is gonna be some free schwag too.
Will he be handing out free testosterone patches like Landis uses? I may need to dope up for Saturday's big race.
Must hurt when you riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip it off:
Jaksche's doctor: drug use common
German doctor Kurt Moosburger, who has looked after Jörg Jaksche (among others) for the past two years, has told dpa that he believes that performance enhancing drugs are "indispensable" for high level cycling
In a frank interview, Moosburger pointed to the average speeds of modern professional races, especially hard tours. "The average in last year's Tour was 41 kilometres per hour - that is incredible. You can do a hard Alpine stage without doping. But after that, the muscles are exhausted. You need - depending on your training conditions - up to three days in order to regenerate."
To help recover, testosterone and human growth hormone can be used. "Both are made by the body and are therefore natural substances," he said. "They help to build muscle as well as in muscle recovery."
Dr Moosburger explained how it was done. "You put a standard testosterone patch that is used for male hormone replacement therapy on your scrotum and leave it there for about six hours. The small dose is not sufficient to produce a positive urine result in the doping test, but the body actually recovers faster."
Too bad there's not a nutsack patch to help with hangovers....
Good timing . . .
the question and answer session should be fun.
