    It apeers that harry b has been busy again, this time delving into the world of drugs in the amatuer game. 😯

    Great read actually.Although i would like to argue about his evidence for a month or so,just to be awkward. 😀

    Why the hell the lad would take epo for some amatuer races,cant really understand.My poor understanding of epo is it can kill you. Worst case example.

    I don’t understand either. If he had been a young lad trying to get himself a pro contract I could at least understand why he might have chosen the route of drugs, but he had about as much chance of getting a pro contract as me 😆

    Yes it can kill you. EPO is a protein secreted by the liver that regulates red blood cell production. For most people EPO is produced naturally within the body, but some people are short of the protein and hence EPO produced in mammalian cell culture was developed by Amgen. Taking EPO as a performance enhancing drug increases the amount of red blood cells in your body, which makes your blood thicker. Consequently your heart has to work that bit harder to pump the thicker liquid round. Get your blood too thick and you are asking for heart failure.

    Great article Harry. 😀

    It’s hard to believe that it goes on at such a level, but as I see, and as the article mentions, go into any gym and you can get performance enhancing drugs.

    And believe me, when you see the state of some of the “scrotes” taking them, who will never be anything but 7 Stone wet through, you really do have to wonder why.

    I had rather given up on C+ as of late, but I’m glad I looked in it for this article as there is some good stuff in this edition.

    Looking forward to reading about the Blackpool C2C cycle route, and rather enjoyed the little article after Harry’s about bicycle bells.
