The amateur version of the Giro d'Italia, known as the Girobio, or Baby Giro, is in full swing in Italy right now. The race, which has ushered many a rider into the ProTour ranks is one of the most difficult and highly coveted races in the world for young riders. The race has made a stand against doping in the race and has done nearly everything in its power to dissuade riders from becoming involved in the doping culture. Unfortunately, it looks like old habits die hard.

This would be illegal under any circumstance, but it stands out even more starkly at the Baby Giro, where riders are not even allowed to take medicines of any sort including vitamins, unless expressly handed over to the race officials before the race, who then approve or forbid the use of the requested product.

The world has gone mad...

How long until a rider has too ask a commisaire for permission to take a p1ss at 1am?
