David Whiting: Mom, Oakley ensnared in grand jury probe

Oct 11, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Orange Co. Register

An ongoing federal grand jury investigation into doping in professional cycling has dragged in the mother of an autistic child, one of our county's coolest companies Oakley and, indirectly, my yellow bracelet.

I do understand how you feel here, yet where were you doing the last 4 years!

Are you for or against doping in cycling?

Why are you not writing to and complaining to the US Cycling along with the US Doping agency as well?

Food for thought

That's exactly what I meant. Popeye doesn't shoot up and neither do I.

But, spinach contains opium, did you know that?

The rubiscolins are a group of opioid peptides which are formed during digestion of the ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) protein from spinach leaves. Rubiscolins mimic the effects of opiates and therefore influence the brain. These peptides have much in common with the better known gluten exorphins. The rubiscolins' impact on mental health is not yet known.
There are 2 known rubiscolins with known structure:
Rubiscolin-5
Structure: H-Gly-Tyr-Tyr-Pro-OH
Chemical formula: C30H45N5O9
Molecular weight: 619.70 g/mol
Rubiscolin-6
Structure: H-Gly-Tyr-Tyr-Pro-Thr-OH
Chemical formula: C39H54N6O10
Molecular weight: 766.87 g/mol
So now you know more, who was it said that "Chris doesn't do research"?

That's different than spinach having opium in it.

I stated that you didn't do reasearch in reference to the Floyd Landis case and I stand by that statement Chris.

I don't believe that this information supports Pieter's theory about spinach having opium in it. There's a difference between having substance within itself and being able to produce a substance through a chemical process from interacting with outer body substances!

I'll also state here that as far as I'm concerned, Alberto Contador is innocent until he is proven guilty. Granted that this particular drug test may or may not have accomplished that. Will be interesting to see how this affair plays out!

CheersHarry, I did as much research as was needed in the Landis case, I told you from the start that he was guilty, but hoped that I could be proved wrong, but no, you and the rest (not you Raymond) at that time would have none of it and had to do some in depth research into all kinds of rubbish. Well, who was right, my gut feeling and drug knowledge, or your research?
Fair play though, you are right. Alberto Contador is innocent until he is proven guilty. I have my doubts that he is ‘wholly’ guilty, I do hope he is innocent, we will all have to wait and see.
Are you doing research into his case? Or as he is not American, you care not?

Spinach is loaded with Iron, that's why it made Popeye so strong.

I'm going to build me a bike, using spinash. It will be super strong (iron) and loaded with PED's which will make it super fast.

And the seat will be super soft.

When I'm busted, I can start eating the bike for more energy.

Sorry Ahole, you are wasting your time, the scientists got it wrong (not for the first time) they miscalculated the amount of Iron in spinash, it is pretty useless, but it won't make you fat (Speedy!!)

HEY! That was my first proper bike, you know, one with ‘curly handlebars’ the adverts told us that Reg Harris rode one, gawd it was a tank, my father went mad when I sold it and bought an Ephgrave, the old ‘Lenton’ ended up with a motor on it, I ended up with the local cycling club, where we were taken all over the County where I lived then, by a guy called ‘Bonzo’ well, Arthur really, a super guy, we would ride out to the TT at 4am, race in a 25 and then meet the club for a club run to do 80+ miles and end up at a tea room someplace, where we were fed with bread, jam and cakes, with tea to drink, as much as you could eat and drink for 2 shillings. My parents could never understand why their child who stayed in bed until noon on Sundays, suddenly went out on a bike at 4am. It all changed my life, FOR THE GOOD!
