As I said on Twitter this weekend too
Wasn’t My Bike I Was Racing should rank right up there with Unborn Twin AND Jack Daniels as worst doping excuses ever.
Just after posting this article, PRI’s The World story dropped on their site with quotes from David Schloss
“I’m not surprised someone put a motor in a bicycle,” says David Schloss, an editor at Bikehugger. “But I’m pretty saddened. I think that any doping really defeats the point of the competition. This just takes it to a whole new level.”
“My suspicions were tweaked the first moment when spectators and magazines and the TV shows all said that it wasn’t possible at all,” he says. “Because they all said the same thing about every type of biological doping.”
