LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

sorry this is in German, but you get the sense. will try to translate eventually, unless some German native speaker would do it.

Armstrong positiv getestet
1999 gewann Lance Armstrong die Tour de France zum ersten Mal

Paris/München - Die Radsport-Welt unter Schock: Lance Armstrong steht unter Doping-Verdacht!

Der siebenmalige Sieger der Tour de France soll 1999 bei seinem ersten Erfolg in Frankreich mit EPO nachgeholfen haben. Das berichtet die französische Zeitung "L'Equipe".

Sechs Urinproben positiv

Im französischen Labor in Chatenay-Malabry wurde dem Bericht zufolge in sechs Urinproben des Amerikaners EPO festgestellt.

Die A-Proben des 33-Jährigen waren damals noch negativ ausgefallen. Diese Proben wurden vernichtet, die B-Proben jedoch aufbewahrt.

Mit neuesten Test-Methoden machten sich die Wissenschaftler später in den B-Proben auf sie Suche nach unerlaubten Mitteln - und wurden fündig.

Schon beim Prolog positiv?

Die Vorwürfe werfen einen Schatten auf die Karriere des "Tourminators". Immer wieder hatte Armstrong beteuert, nie mit unerlaubten Mitteln nachgeholfen zu haben.

Auch jetzt wehrt er sich vehement gegen die Vorwürfe: "Ich habe niemals leistungssteigernde Mittel genommen. Das ist purer Skandaljournalismus der L'Equipe", erklärte Armstrong auf seiner Internetseite.

Doch in den Proben nach dem Prolog der Tour 1999 am 3. Juli in Puy-du-Fou, nach der ersten Etappe von Montaigu nach Challans, dem neunten Teilstück von Grand-Bornand nach Sestrières, Etappe Nummer zehn Sestrières - L'Alpe d'Huez, zwölf Saint-Galmier - Saint-Flour und 14 Castres - Saint-Gaudens fanden sich erhöhte EPO-Werte.

EPO wird seit 1983 synthetisch hergestellt


Erythropoetin (EPO) ist ein in der Niere produziertes körpereigenes Hormon, das die Bildung roter Blutzellen in den Stammzellen des Knochenmarks anregt.

Diese Erythrozyten binden in der Lunge Sauerstoff und transportieren diesen zur Versorgung der Zellen in die verschiedenen Körperregionen wie die Muskulatur. Seit 1983 ist es möglich, EPO synthetisch herzustellen.

Unter anderem wurde Ex-Tour-Sieger Marco Pantani des EPO-Doping überführt.

Anschuldigungen seit Jahren

Seit mehreren Jahren muss sich Armstrong mit Doping-Anschuldigungen auseinander setzen.

Unmittelbar vor der Tour de France 2004 erschien zu diesem Thema das Buch "L.A. Confidential - die Geheimnisse des Lance Armstrong".

Darin bezichtigen eine ehemalige Masseurin, frühere Teamkameraden und der ehemalige Tour-de-France Sieger Greg LeMond Armstrong des EPO-Dopings.

Armstrong geht gegen den Autoren David Walsh juristisch vor.

Anklage gegen Dr. Ferrari scheitert

2000 musste der Amerikaner eingestehen, dass ihn der italienische Arzt Dr. Michele Ferrari seit 1995 berät. Diesem wurde vor Gericht vorgeworfen, Radsportler mit Dopingmitteln zu versorgen.

Die Anklage scheiterte jedoch aus Mangel an Beweisen.

Positiver Test von 1999 ohne Folgen

Ein dokumentierter positiver Doping-Befund von Armstrong existiert jedoch. Er datiert pikanterweise vom 4. Juli 1999.

Damals wurde schon während der Rundfahrt ein erhöhter Kortikoid-Wert festgestellt, der mit einem Rezept erklärt wurde.

Das Rezept soll vordatiert worden sein. Der positive Test blieb folgenlos.

Re: LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

Yes, I have heard about this, but they won't take away his title and it was an open secret that he had the high haemoglobin levels which weren't due to hormonal problems.

The only thing that is almost surprising is that he might have got caught.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

Here's the link to the original article published in l'Equipe this morning. They have made the research...

http://www.lequipe.fr/Cyclisme/DOPAGE_ARMSTRONG_2.html

I'm not worried, given the importance of the issue, it's gonna be soon available in many other languages than German or French!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

merci, Choupinsky. here's from the bbc:

Armstrong denies drug allegations

Armstrong wins seventh Tour
Seven-times Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong has denied claims in French newspaper L'Equipe that he was using blood-boosting drugs in 1999.
"Yet again, a European newspaper has reported that I've tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs," he told his website www.lancearmstrong.com.

"L'Equipe is reporting that my 1999 samples were positive.

"I will simply restate what I have said many times: I have never taken performance-enhancing drugs."

Armstrong added: "Unfortunately, the witch hunt continues and the article is nothing short of tabloid journalism.

"The paper even admits in its own article that the science in question here is faulty and that I have no way to defend myself.

"They state 'There will therefore be no counter-exam nor regulatory prosecutions, in a strict sense, since defendant's rights cannot be respected'."

The 33-year-old American retired from racing after claiming an unprecedented seventh Tour victory last month.

Armstrong, who won his first Tour in 1999 after recovering from life-threatening cancer, has never tested positive for a banned substance.

It's the sport where they do the latest experiments in substances that can give an edge to the athlete.

Sure, I used to like it but these things made me take it out from my sports menu.

BTW, watch out this Spanish football season, I have some nice feelings about my team doing well

I understand I have the same feelings about most sports but for different reasons.

Nothing will happen to Armstrong that's the thing, even if it has been 100 % proven.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

Well, I dunno why l'Equipe's (french medias in general) always hounding poor Armrstrong. 4 months of inquiry to prove what ? Everybody (maybe except mr bush) knows Lance is like all the cylists...
