    Near fatal blood doping in May 1999. Just before the Lance Armstrong's DOPING EXEMPT Tour de Farces.

    PFC perfluorocarbon metabolites. Makes EPO & cow blood seem so tame.

    Mauro spent ten days in the University Hospital--mostly in the ICU.

    Eventually Mauro became Chris Horner's boss at Sanier Duval.

    Nothing has changed except the research drugs and methods.

    That's a very good article. It's kind of scary to mess with your blood that way. Riders should just take a bunch of Sudafeds before a race. It's what hockey players do.

    I guess the cow blood IVs are less dangerous than the PFC gas bus.


    Will ASO DQ Rasmussen today?
