Great article on doping in cycling (by a "regular" guy, not a pro)
VeloNews published an article well-worth reading about a Cat5/Cat4/Cat3 42-year-old who needed "assistance" to achieve his dreams on a bike. A guy who would never be competing at the highest levels, and yet was willing to spend untold thousands of dollars on equipment & training & yes, $1000/month on doping products. HGH & EPO.
Read the article here My response below-
It's like a modern-day version of Paul Kimmage's "Rough Ride" (an extraordinary read even if you can't stand the way Kimmage has conducted his anti-drug crusade in the years since). It differs primarily in motivation; Kimmage simply wanted to keep up, while Anthony might claim that but sounds more like the type of guy who's infatuated with his ability to out-smart the next guy, the sort of person who would have been an Enron and discovered hey, look at what happens if I control this variable... I can get rich!
