Richie Rude Announces Return to the EWS
@erod: Doesn't matter if it is super low. Oxi and Hig leave your system fast. Could have popped pills throughout race day. Could have always done this because there was no testing before. They are both DAY OF EVENT performance enhancing drugs (as opposed to TRAINING DRUGS like EPO, Steroids and HGH).

Richie Rude Announces Return to the EWS
They had "advanced analytical findings" (small doses) It is legally hard to ban someone for an AAF. If a rider was busted with a 6:1 testosterone to epitestosterone (4:1 for example is the "natural" IAAF [track] limit) that would be completely difference as it would be blatant evidence of testosterone/steroid doping so could result in a lifetime ban. Same thing with a hemocrit level above 50% (have to be taking EPO to get up here as 50% would make your blood very thick from all the red blood cells putting rider at danger of a heart attack).

Richie Rude Announces Return to the EWS
@almacigatrailrider: Drugs never offer a MASSIVE benefit. Think Charlie Francis (Ben Johnson's coach) said 3-4% for steroids for the 100m in his book for example. Steroids are a TRAINING DRUG. EPO might be more for cycling - maybe 5%+ range. Those are huge advantages though. Tons of endurance athletes get diagnosed with 'exercise induced asthma' so they can go on Sabutamol (what froome was busted for) so inhalers must offer a 1-2% advantage by opening up the airways. The key thing no one in the MTB world understand is that 100m athletes have been using stimulants for 30 years because they work. Sabutamol and stiumulants are DAY OF EVENT DRUGS - they offer an advantage on race day. Carl Lewis tested positive for 3 stimulants a the 88 US Olympic trials and never should have been allowed into the 88 olympics. Cheater. In 2013 like 5-6 world class sprinters got busted for Oxilofrine. If you run the 100m any advantage counts so Oxi must count for at least 1-2% in the 100m. Oxi would help with alertness and focus in all stages. You pretty much have to ride balls out to win an EWS so Oxi would help. They higenamine would help to open up airways. Debatable if you would get a real advantage from the hig, but it may offer a more mental confidence boost. Since the EWS never tested before, many riders could have been using DAY OF EVENT training drugs for years. The advantage is probably small overall - like 1-2%, but that always matters at the top level.

Trips For Kids, Squamish Rides For You
We're super stoked to have James join our Board of Directors this year. It's really cool seeing things come full circle as he as actually a cousin of the the original TFK founder from 2001 who carried the torch of keeping TFK alive as a volunteer-run charity start up for the first decade. TFK will be riding in Squamish for the week of July 18-22. If you know of any youth with barriers you think should be involved please email our program coordinator Spencer to coordinate at: rides@tfkvancouver.org Also - if you missed it. Here is the piece on the definitive history of TFK from 2015 to celebrate our 15th anniversary http://www.pinkbike.com/news/15-years-on-the-shore-the-untold-story-of-trips-for-kids-vancouver-2015.html

Great program. It is initiatives like AYMBP that make us proud to be mountain bikers and highlight the real power of the sport to connect to nature and build self empowerment for life - especially if you can get youth involved in their formation years. Props to Patrick for getting AYMBP off the ground. Big shout out to PB as well for continuing to feature programs like AYMBP, Share the Ride and Trips for Kids as a positive alternative to industry news to help us remind ourselves why we really bike. Keep up the good work!
