It's not about the bike; it's about the dope and whether or not you get caught doping.

Exactly. Look at the performance of Chris Froome in Stage 19 of the 2018 Giro D'Italia. With 80Km remaining in the stage he went on the attack and stayed away to the finish to win the stage by almost 4 minutes. Who does that? Before the stage he was 3:22 minutes behind in the general classification, and with such an insurmountable deficit he was considered not to even podium. What changed after Stage 18? He must of had some super duper enhancement....something that made him superior to his mere mortal rivals.
