    There’s a months long turnaround on some criminal case testing, why would anyone expect ASADA testing to do it quicker, let alone for the results to be acted upon without further deliberation, let alone at a time when perhaps the facilities they use might be doing tests for a certain other disease.

    some samples are stored for up to 10 years, they dont get analysed immediately

    be careful what you post guys as he is not found guilty until such times as his B sample is analysed and he is formally found guilty by WASA/ASADA

    at the moment its an allegation only

    Backlogs, other more important shit.

    Also storage means they can back test when new tech comes along. See old One Nut Lance Armstrong. So it might not be that they weren't tested, just that they weren't tested for everything

    You'd have to go pretty hard on the juice to get prison time, but sure...

    No but I believe that they're tested for pretty much everything well within ten years. Probably 99.9% under a year. Storage and retesting of remaining sample is different.

    Probably nearly all of them, yeah.

    The bloke who gets the lanterne rouge at the Tour De France and barely makes it to the top 100 of a spring classic, or Eric the Eel, or John Hopoate after his switch to floor gymnastics, or Will Smith? Maybe not so fussed about testing ASAP.

    He was tested constantly, but always passed. Got done done through whistleblowers and retesting I think. But I'm pretty sure he's still a multimillionaire.

    He's an exception though. He was using a tech they couldn't test for at the time. Still, how many athletes go from middle of the pack to the GOAT, after getting f**ken cancer? I think there was definitely a lot of denial in his case

    The high level dopers are always a step ahead, unfortunately.

    Yeah they do that blood passport thing now. Compare your something something from this year to your something something from last year.
