Interesting "Health" article...

Discussion in 'Road Cycling' started by Colin Campbell, Aug 30, 2004.

  1. The Health section of today's LA Times says that use of Viagra and its
    competitors is spreading fast to younger men - the under 45 age range
    tripled in insurance reimbursement requests from 1998 to 2002. Doctors
    are reporting requests from men as young as 16.

    And, in a companion story, a study funded by the German Research
    Foundation and Pfizer reports Viagra is helping both men and women
    mountain climbers breathe more easily while climbing at extreme
    altitudes (such as Mt. Everest). It seems to help at sea level as well
    (although it wasn't tested on elite athletes, it has been tested and
    used on race horses), and is NOT banned by sporting organizations!

    I wonder if any elite athletes have started using it yet?

    Concerning male cyclists, I guess it might make it hard to hold an aero
    position, no?

    Yeah, you gotta wonder if the breathing benefits would offset the
    difficulties of riding with a big ole' boner.

    I figure hard pedalling and the frenzy of competition would offset the
    sexual response. But if a rider were to pin some graphic pornography
    the jersey pocket, a juiced up breakaway partner might find himself
    distracted, and suddenly lacking a half a liter of blood volume.

    Remember the Cinelli stem that Cipo used with the pinup on it back in the
    mid-1990s?

    Pamela Anderson. But that wasn't "graphic porn". In a race situation,
    "leaving something to the imagination" isn't going to cut it.

    Please, you Americans need to stop giving Lance all the credit.
    This technique was already used by Eddy Planckaert in the Ronde ...
