A second rider has been taken away in handcuffs for failing a tour drug test. Barloworld’s Moises Duenas's urine test after stage four showed signs of the all to familiar EPO and he was arrested at this teams hotel room yesterday. There has been speculation on a number of online forums and sites that follow professional cycling that many riders are now turning to a medical practice employed for years as a viable means to test drugs in humans or in labratories "microdosing" or microdoping perhaps, is the practice of administering an illegal substance over the period of many months in doses so small the body can handle the drugs differently and more discretely without side effects or perhaps without detections.
This only serves as proof there are no deterents to cheating. Only deterents to being caught. If that sounds like i just said the same thing let me explain; Much like crime in general, people are only consider the repercussions once they get caught. When they are engaged in the act, their is one sole thought in their head; "Dont get caught!". The conceit and disregard for everyone else on the planet it takes to do something like this is unimaginable to me, and yet so common no one is suprised when another idiot gets taken off in cuffs. I wonder what the "take back the tour" motto will change to next year? "Take back the tour....again, and we really mean it this time."
