Training evolves and it gets to the point of when is it cheating and when is it more advanced training? Do you draw the line at artificial chemical stimulants but organic is OK? Blood doping is what, withdrawing ones blood, putting nutrients into the blood and then re-entering it back into the rider. This is what happens when you eat. You digest the food, it gets broken down and ends up as nutrients in the blood... So blood doping is a quicker delivery system. Is that not what vitamins are. A quicker delivery system. If you had to eat 6 oranges to get 1500 migs of Vitamin C that would take you 30 minutes. Take a Vitamin C pill and be done with it! Cheating! I think artificial steriods, testosterone... should be illegal but natural forms are acceptable.
The frenchies ( I won't honor them with a capital letter) claim that artificial testosterone was found in one of his samples, but the protocol for handling his samples was not followed correctly. So that begs the question, are there members of the french media and willing french accomplices in Montreal ( where the testing was done I believe) that would conspire to discredit an American who has stolen there race from them. They have been suffering from being owned by the Americans for too long. I don't trust them.
