      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Landis Kicks Ass

so this is probably a little premature because they haven't done the second test yet, but i'd just like to say whoever came in 2nd rockband.gif 's!

Along JayB's line of thinking....wouldn't testosterone be used to bulk up? And even then an athelet would use it over a long period of time and not simply inject it to get a sudden boost for the next day. I could see someone transfusing rbcs to get a boost because I would assume the positive effects would be almost instantaneous. Why in the world would he be doing steroids (testosterone) in the middle of the Tour? It will be interesting to see if his previous tests show an increased level or if this is the only time it showed up (fishy). I am sure they took samples from him earlier. I have heard that they sometimes test the Tour riders 3 days in row.

He wouldn't have have been doping just for one stage. It would be an indicator of a longer program. The UCI uses a ratio of 4:1 - just lowered it from 6:1. Apparently naturaly occurring ratios higher than 6:1 have been documented. Check this out also:

 

Evaluation of testosterone/epitestosterone ratio influential factors as determined in doping analysis.

The ratio of the concentration of testosterone glucuronide to the concentration of epitestosterone glucuronide (T/E ratio) as determined in urine is the most frequently used method to prove testosterone abuse by athletes. A T/E ratio higher than 6 has been considered as proof of abuse in the past; however, cases of naturally occurring higher T/E ratios have been described. Since the introduction of the T/E ratio in doping analysis, the parameters that may or may not influence the T/E ratio, possibly leading to false-positive results, have been debated. To achieve more insight on the influencing circumstances, an overview is given to obtain an objective view on the merits of the urinary T/E ratio. Relevant analytical aspects of the T/E ratio, potential parameters of endogenous and exogenous origins, as well as some alternative methods to determine testosterone abuse, such as the urinary testosterone/luteinizing hormone ratio, gas chromatography-combustion-isotope-ratio mass spectrometry, hair analysis, and high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, are discussed.

Drinking a bunch of beer will alter your T/E ratio too. More so in women, however.

 

Maybe Floyd was drinking a PBR or two. ? smile.gif

OMG!!! he's a male!!!

Landis, who won the 2006 race last weekend, tested positive for the male sex hormone testosterone after his sensational win in the 17th stage of this year's race which he won after powering away on a 130km solo breakaway.

 

fqing reporters are idiots!!!

I'm pretty sure that most of the techno-wank pillowbitters in full racing regalia that I pass on the Burke-Gilman everyday wouldn't test positive for testosterone.

well yes. But it makes for easy hands-free access to my champagne glass. A nice feature when trying to work on my commuting buzz.

If you'd like to do some testosterone urinalysis, I can probably provide you with a taste test.

Just heard that Landis' B-Sample also failed today....

wow, if this is true...... what a fuking looser....if he only would have let up a bit on the fatefull day and not won by so much maybe they would have not become so suspect...but then I do believe all stage winners are guarenteed a day in the lab.

any rate, it really is too bad....
