Cyclists who dope themselves with EPO may not gain any performance advantage even though they are putting their health at risk, says scientists.

 

So Lance and the rest were all riding on PLACEBO???

A lack of evidence exists to support EPO doping provides an advantage to elite athletes.  Preliminary studies only indicate the probability of harm to users.  Does Lance deserve to keep his medals following this controversial report or is the intent to gain an unfair advantage enough to merit stripping his medals?

Andrew Flanagan's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:05 PM

Cycling will always be reffered to as one of the dirtiest sports there is. Michael Barry wrote a very interesting article how he made many unethical decisions in his past not only doping but also riding with broken bones but they way things were 10 years ago you had too. He talks about how the sport is becoming cleaner but how health is still not a large priority. Ethics, fairness, and organizational culture all play a role in this article. Riders from many different teams are coming out and saying how dangerous and corrupt the sport has been and it would take a governing body to fix it. 

Anthony J. Cameron's curator insight, September 12, 2014 2:06 PM

There are so many athletes that have won on the grandstand without the use of performance enhancing drugs. Cycling has tried to clean up their image since the Lance Armstrong's case. His case tainted that sport and questions other cyclists that compete at the Tour de France.
