It could be true for pro's. Very sad reflection on those who control the sport. However, I'm sure that any young rider never wanted to or intended to cheat.

It's all about the so called entrepeneurs, who's greed surpasses sport.

Hello Raymond. Hope all is well with you and your family.

I watched a program where a film maker and producer filmed his two brothers who are weight lifters. In this program he explains all about his family and their background along with their up-bringing.

There were no drugs (steroids) being used in their family till his two brothers hit college and their coaches. One brother finally got off the drugs and the other one still uses them.

Enjoy the ride while you still can and enjoy that fresh open air!

Cheers,

Hallo Harry, YES my friend, it is so very sad. Is it just human nature? Why o why do perfectly decent people find drugs the answer to thier dreams, outside pressure? I must admit, I just do not know!

Anyway, my very kindest regards to yourself and your familly. Time is now shorter but I still turn the pedals for life and health. I truely hope you do as well. Exersize is life!
