Video: Red Bull's 'The Honest Truth About Competitive Bans in Enduro MTB' - On Track with Greg Callaghan
@Jamminator: @thenotoriousmic: @GBeard: Lasik to correct an issue is one thing, but Golfers use it to get as close to 20/20 eye-sight as they can. For Golf it's as game changing as Epo.

@BenPea: I never said he should deserve a 2 year ban? Of course the circumstances were weighted and thus he got a minimum. Seems reasonable. But I will add in that it's really weird not to check again if you already had doubts. That's not about being paranoid.

@BDKR: It's the most peculiar thing, which raises some questionmarks. 1. He asked the doctor if it was on the Wada list, the doctor said it would be allowed. 2. He and his manager then tried to verify (i.o.w. they didn't feel certain the doctor was correct). They didn't have data reception, so they couldn't verify. 3. Back at the hotel they somehow forgot the whole thing and didn't check. 4. Then when he was informed that he got "popped" he started to check the medicine and found out it had a banned substance. But when back from the doctor they didn't follow through... and that's quite stupid. Had he checked immediately and written the UCI he either would have gotten a TUE (Likely) or be asked not to compete. The latter isn't great, but he wouldn't have had a doping infraction. Maes and his manager clearly messed up as they demonstrated they realized the possible problem. Also, quite reasonable for the UCI/Wada not to allow a TUE in this case. It was literally months later.

@BDKR: He should have checked afterwards and applied for a TUE, he didn't so he deserved the ban. And to ram this nail into the table: He did realize this could be a problem, yet didn't follow through. On deserving or not: I ran a red light a year ago. A honest mistake. Still my fault.

@BenPea: Why not? Who would you say is responsible for ingesting stuff?

@BDKR: So how does this play out with Maes? Should Maes have know that this doctor was going to give him some ill 5h1t Yes. And Maes actually knew that considering they did ask that question and did try to look it up (which is quite odd considering they didn't do that afterwards). You can rant and rave but these rules have been there for years, not sure why you think EWS riders should be excepted.

You either get awarded a TUE or you take a voluntary break for health reasons.

@gooutsidetoday: First off, Maes deserved the ban. But the thing that makes Maes case relatively believable is the circumstances with a wound and standard NZ medical practice. It's still a fully justified ban, but considering what we know it's really the most plausible reason.

@WAKIdesigns: Why would intent matter? The rules are quite clear here.
