Cyclists Find New Way to Use Old Doping Tool - NYTimes.com

I used to be an amateur bike racer (road) in the Bay Area and have long disputed the anxiety surrounding the moral hazard of doping, though not the physical. I'd be more supportive of efforts to control doping if it were focused on the physical harm incurred. But so many seem convinced that sports offers a new Eden of the body and soul tainted thus by the self-interest of the athlete. And that's nonsense, as the history of modern athletics (or even ancient) more than amply demonstrates. Image is not reality.
