Martin Maes Tests Positive for Masking Agent at EWS Rotorua & Tasmania, Receives 90 Day ‘Non-Intentional’ Suspension
yeah meant to say WADA. Elite level athletic competition,especially individual type events, which of course include bike racing, places both governing bodies and athletes in tough positions. As is obvious with cycling, many athletes will find and utilize very meticulous and organized means to gain a competitive edge. At the same time, governing bodies exist to codify what is fair and what is not. This decision in my mind shows that this athlete was in the right and the governing body responsible for the decision was in the wrong. What’s the alternative from the perspective of the athlete???? Hey doc, even though that med is clinically indicated, don’t give it to me. That’s not a choice any athlete should have to make.

As a medical doctor, this is dumb. Probenecid is a drug used to treat Gout, and as mentioned to help boost an antibiotic to prevent infection. “Because the original use of Probenecid by athletes was in amounts that far exceed therapeutic doses (normally 1 gm per day), it was extremely easy to detect. Because of ease of detection due to the unusually large size of doses, Probenecid is no longer used by dishonest athletes. Probenecid no longer can be used as a weapon for cheating. As soon as it became a substance on the banned drug list (believed to have been in 1987) it ceased to be used by athletes for cheating because of its very ease of detection.” After this and Richie Rude/ Jared Graves scenario, it seems pretty clear that the UCI isn’t interested in punishing cheating athletes. From a medical standpoint, to punish an athlete for such inconsequential “substances”, is more shameful than being the athlete who took the “substance”.

Striking Contrast Between Frenetic Summer & Dark Winter Rides - Video
"Riding forces your mind to be present, to shed the worries and stresses it brings on itself. It takes your brain into a state of flow it is the perfect manifestation of mindfulness. We all know what that feels like - leaving the house grumpy or frustrated, stressed and tired, and as soon as we get on the trails, take that first pedal, it all drips away with the sweat and the rain. Leaving us focused and renewed." Perfect sentiment and exactly why I ride

Full 2017 EWS Season Recap - Video
Man to think the last few years Rude was just as dominant in the men's as Ravanel was this year in women's and he barely broke the top ten. Loved watching Sam Hill pull it together in his his first full year! 2018 can't come soon enough
