Forgive me if this may already have been discussed. I just came across a copy of what I presume is a new publication ... called simply "Road." It calls itself "The Journal of Road Cycling and Culture." Hmmm. It's quite slick looking, but seriously lacking in content IMHO. There's an inteview with a rider named Daniel Ramsey who is an American that raced for several years on some Italian squads. He said that 70% of the riders in Italy dope -- even in the amateur ranks. He said the pressure for results is so intense it drives them to it. He said they even juice up for training rides. Sheesh ... If this is true, I sure was being naive. I guess I'll start eyeing guys with suspicion who are riding too well at the club centuries. Bob C.
