I should report you for accusing me falsely. I have stated facts, not made any judgement. Of course HES should carry a 2-year ban.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Yes, you did.

However, two days ago the same Spanish federation banned another Spanish rider, Mosquera, with the harshest punishment: 2 years, despite testing positive for a substance that is not really performance enhancing and not really in the list of true "positive substances".

They make no sense...
HES is masking agent for blood doping and should therefĺr be treated as such, which is far more serious than a weight loss drug. Furthermĺr, Contador's ultra-low values and negative test the previous day, proves that the positive was not a result of deliberate ingestion of clenbuterol.

What happened is sadly sometimes irrelevant in court.

Fact is, HES (for some reason) is in a sort of legal limbo as far as illegal substances go. I'm not going to pretend I understand what all of that is about.

On the other hand, clembuterol is a standard banned substance with no minimum threshold.

Okay, but there are precedents for the maximum length ban. I know of at least 6 skiers who were suspended for 2 years.

There's still the "no significant fault" thingy that saved Richie and a bunch of clenbuterol failures...

Their whole game revolves arround position play and applying insane amounts of pressure as a team. They need ridiculous stamina for that.

Just a lame envious troll, exactly the same as you. But while he uses Le Monde, MTF is your habitat.

Re: Yannick Noah suspects Spain's success a fraud.

Noah should not have singled out one country....many athletes and many countries have players doing this type of thing. Singling out Spain just makes it sound like sour grapes.

He is definitely right though, there are some Spaniards that seem like obvious dopers....along with several other top players.

Re: Yannick Noah suspects Spain's success a fraud.

yeah but spain seems like the least probable country on the list of potential doping offenders, judging by the way its sportsmen worked their way up to the top. other sports superpowers have emerged over the last century and many of them have simply skyrocketed out of thin air. spain on the other hand has gradually climbed up the ladder, bit by bit.

do people forget its national teams' track record? it's not like spain used to be some hapless amateur second-tier team that got brutally beaten up time and time again. the only thing that prevented them from achieving glory during tournaments prior to 2008 was some sort of mental roadblock. it was just a matter of time to navigate around it, sooner or later the negative bubble was about to pop anyways.

the same goes for tennis. what about moya? bruguera? corretja? noah makes it sound as if nadal was the first spaniard ever to hold a major title.
