I cant find any info on if cocaine is a possible performance enhancer for cycling. Was Simoni using recreationally, did it legaly matter if the dentist was responsible, why would a world class rider use cocaine?

partying a little too hard.

however, cocaine was frequently used in cycling as a stimulant in the early days of racing. modern day amphetamines probably made it obsolete for this purpose a long time ago.

Coke helps me survive the nasty days with a better attitude and makes me more chatty with the other riders in the pack. "Man, even though the weather is horrible, it is such a nice day and it is so great to be out racing with all you guys,".

I believe that he blamed dental work (emergency dental care), and the dentist used a drug that was picked up as cocaine. I also think that he produced a note from the doctor. Regardless, this information should be on cyclingnews.com.

I just hope that Hamilton isn't eating poppy seed bagels.
