Exclusive: Richie Rude & Jared Graves Failed Drug Test at EWS France
@max2max: , well this i cant argue with. my point being these rules change through time when it suits the governing bodies..... so Oxilofrine might be perfectly acceptable and legal in 5 years when they realise everyone is on it. thus creating a grey area of discussion........hence the "food for thought" rant i had to put up in response to maxx-x's "speak before thinking" comment ...... but at the end of the day, if the rule is you are not allowed to take a carb drink during the competition, then......well thats the rule, doesnt matter how silly you think the rule is and doesnt matter when they change the rule after the fact. ..... you are right - at that given moment everyone needs to compete under the same test conditions

WHAT???? @maxx-x honestly! see folks like you, that have no idea about hard training and sports nutrition!!!!! your soapbox rant makes sense to the plebs that know fukk all about sport, much like Hitlers rants made sense to the plebs that knew fukk all about human ethics. getting 3000kcal out of a white powder is not normal because it doesnt exist. and your uneducated speech does nothing to clarify the truths in sports science. there is no athlete with a brain that doesnt focus on healthy eating first , then training and recovery , then basic supplement to keep them healthy like protein and carb mixes, then highly specifc training and recovery plans, before they get any where near specified subsatnces like beta alanine etc. never mind the illegal ones. however rules are rules....... but these rules are arbitary descisions made at some point when the previous arbitary decision become untenable. pre 1900 - it was seen as cheating if you trained for your sport in the olympics mid 1900s, if you were paid to do a sport it was classed as cheating in the olympics (research -Jim thorpe) 1930s, Russia and eastern bloc start sports schools, and the olypmics has to start changing it ideals of professional athletes mid 60s the banned susbstances starting in olympics mid 70s, caffeine was introduced to the banned list mid 80s, caffeine ban changed to stipulated amounts and professional athletes now allowed to enter 1988 - carl lewis and 100 other olympians fail drugtest - shortly after the rules were changed to his benefit 2002 - skier Alain baxter stripped of bronze medal due to having a cold/blocked nose and his brother buying the wrong type of nasal clearer from the pharmacy 2004, caffeine off the banned list........ a substance that is clinically proven to enhance athletes performance and increase metabolism, burn fat and increase focus. at what point do you consider the following cheating training for the sport eating healthy for the sport dieting for the sport taking protein to aide recovery in a demanding training schedule taking carb mixes during the event to maintain energy taking specialist suppliments like caffeine, beta alanine, glucosamine, condensed beetroot juice, arginine etc hiring a coach/trainer to get the best out of you hiring a massuer to deal with your ailments being on a team with chefs,doctors,physicians, masseurs and mechanics high alititude training to get more oxygen in blood barometric chamber to get more oxygen in the blood blood doping to get more oxygen in the blood taking EPO to get more oxygen in the blood those last 4 are important..... the first 2 are legal but cost a shit load to implement and thus only available to the rich teams, the last 2 are illegal but very easy and cheap to do........ a system in place where only the rich teams can benefit from getting additional oxygen into the blood. sorry thats my rant over

@kiksy: oooooooft. and this may mark the point where our governing bodies prove themselves to be wavering in their rules or holding steadfast. the implicatons and ramifcations are pretty big for the athlete and the organisation

@colincolin: thats not very nice. imagine how the criminal courts worked if we jailed everyone that some random poster on a forum aired their suspicions that "Xname" was a criminal.

@NotNamed: , simply not true. whilst i'm sure there are plenty of lazy buggers taking supps, theres plenty of folk destroying themselves daily, in the hunt for an extra 1 or 2 seconds taking supps.. the lazy fukkers arent interested in the marginal gains, and their supps are wasted on them, but the honed athletes that bury themselves daily are interested in the marginal gains, and their supps are pretty damned important to them. The correct supps, are important for recovery, and a numerous other benefit's that if you tried to match with food you'd end up putting massive amounts of weight on...... obviously the last thing any athlete wants....unless they are a sumo wrestler of course

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@kperras and time costs..... typically takes me an hour to cut and wrap one of my frames....even if you could get that down to 10 mins for a smooth operating factory will require, a time management process to be created, and £££££ lost to labouring for 10 mins per bike for 1000's of bike frames....... never mind the cost of said heli tape for 1000s of frames

Video: How Do Enduro Pros Fuel Up For Race Day?
@WAKIdesigns: me too dude, one day hopefully - as long as you dont hate on my lack of style ;-) .... y'know my phone screen background image is one of your drawings i took off the web !! the one with the Trek session, aero farings, and tri spoke wheels - cheers.!! as we've both agreed we both respect each other way of doing things. i defintiely agrree on the tow truck symbolism. I was a 90kg tow truck at one point, now i'm not exactly light at 80kg but lightest ive ever been since i was 15, my work pattern means i do 4 days gym stuff at my place of work during lunchtime, then have 4 days to ride, rest, not count reps etc, lol, before i'm back at work to start again. pretty much all my gym work is explosive speed and power stuff to keep the legs and arms nimble. but once every 8 days or so i do a heavy(ish) weighted squat day..... i dont want to do less often as i'll struggle to walk the day after, and i dont want to do it more often and turn in to a tow truck again. the thing i really struggle to do, and i know i should do it is what you've described relating to silly stuff like the bmx park , jumps etc. my biggest strenght is bull dozing through mad bastard rock gardens and very steep terrain, and my biggest weaknesses are corner efficiency and very high speed trails..... some time spent on a bmx track could help with that for sure........but i'm also pretty sure my wife would divorce me if i bought bmx. take care waki. and cheers for you being you!!
