Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Getting Faster

Hello. I like to think I'm a pretty fast rider. I'm usually 2 or 3 in our group rides. The group I ride with is made up of all fast riders and is ultra competitive. I want to give myself an "edge". I'm thinking of doing a couple of cycles of e p o. If things go well and I get good results I want to enter some local amateur races. My goal is to eventually get sponsored.

Also. I'm 23 years old. I currently ride @ 200 miles a week.

Sounds like a solid plan. Shoot up every other day.

BTW, I think we need a new subforum for all the parody and troll posts.

Are you the same guy showing off your quads in the dated-looking bathroom? I'm guessing yes.

You can get a hematocrit centrifuge on ebay for like $100.

Veternary EPO. Medical supplies on Amazon or a large animal supply store like Tractor Supply.

Do HGH, steroids, and EPO for a few years WITHOUT COMPETING. Then quit the drugs for a while and begin racing.

You will enjoy the benefits for years without even breaking the rules. Look at Valverde. Big doper then, but still fast.

If you need epo just to get sponsored, you must really suck at cycling.

You need to bump your mileage to 41 per day

Until you get your hematocrit over 60, you're nothing.

I can do that without epo. I just forego liquid nourishment for several days. My blood flows like lava.

Wow!

"If you need epo just to get sponsored, you must really suck at cycling."

are you sponsored? I just want to have an edge. I'm not looking to join a team and make money. I already have plenty of money. I just want to do amateur racing road and mountain bike races. I put in plenty of time in the saddle. Cycling is my full time job. As I said before, I already have plenty of money. I just want people to admire me. I want to see the competition cringe when I show up for a ride or race.

There have been some amateur riders around here that have tested positive. I don't get it. They were masters riders on top of it. Crazy.

Tough competition indeed but I stand by my original statement. A good troll ideally needs to be able to trick people that what they are posting might be real and genuine. As the say: "You can fool some of the people some of the time" but this guy hasn't fooled anyone.
