Doping: Crime and Punishment?
You guys are crazy! I've been racing Pro DH in Colorado for over ten years. Most of the fastest riders I know do it because they love it, DEFINITELY NOT for the money. Even if you win the Male Pro Class in most DH/MX/DS events, your winnings don't even cover your entry fee and your tires! Why the hell would (or could) you dope? I've had my strongest competition show me their lines, or give me a part that I need out of their toolbox so that I can beat them! Pure, friendly, respectful, honest, competitors. We want the best rider to win, period! Hardly any of us 'get rich' from sponsorship or endorsements, and most of us pay something for our bikes/kits/entry fees/gym time, etc. Maybe a few WC riders do a little doping, but even then, their paychecks and endorsements are a tiny fraction of the money and sponsorship opportunities in Euro Road Racing. Most of the top WC DHers are family men that are gonna spend their money on homes and investments to keep them going when the meager paycheck from DHing dries up.

Ranchstyle Pinkbike Best Trick Throwdown - Vote now!
Greg Watts was the cleanest rider, backflip x-up barspin. MM killed it with the barhop backflip, Laurenuk's "Decade air", which everyone has mislabeled as a downside 3 whip, was sick!
