Rumsas: drugs "were for mother-in-law"jromack

What a crock! Very original.

Among the drugs seized were corticoids, testosterone, and EPO.

Yeah, the mother-in-law is into performance enhancing her shuffleboard game!
I'd like to drug my mother-in-law!! nmMXL02

no sense at all. Why would you give your mother-in-law something that ENHANCES performance? I'd believe it if (1) the drugs were enough barbituates to take down a blue whale, and (2) they were in HIS possession.

On the other hand, since the drugs were found on HER, it makes a little more sense. Who could blame a loving daughter for trying to perk her mama up? Of course, if I ever caught my wife giving my mother-in-law so much as a cup of instant coffee, it would be splitsville for sure.
The weird part...mr_spin

I'm going with innocent until proven guilty for Rumsas, but there is one thing I don't understand. Rumsas is making the podium at the Tour, a major achievement for any cyclist. His wife chooses that day to leave the country!

It's not like she saw the finish, beamed at her husband on the podium, celebrated afterwards, then drove home. She was caught at 8:00 Sunday morning in Chamonix! I don't think the final stage even started until noon!

If my wife were already in France and I am making the podium at the Tour, I would want her to be there and I'd hope she would want to be there, too. I'd even want to stay a few days in Paris and make up some lost time.

Ah, but that's just me.

she probably had trouble to keep up with her son-in-law
If guilty, he will be stripped of his 3rd place finish. nmPaul

So Botero gets a podium position without stepping on it? nmelviento

Did he not have negative results on all his drug tests? And, to the best of my knowledge, corticosteroids, EPO and testosterone are all easily detected in the tests. Are there new drugs that can mask these things?

Maybe his mother-in-law is a Lithuanian weight lifter.

No, you are just naivecyclejim

Give me a break. I don't even have to hear the rest of the investigation to say that I am 100% convinced that the substances found were either used OR certainly intended for use by Rumsas. Imagine if Lances wife had been caught with the same stuff...what would everyone say.. well gee he hasnt tested positive yet??... LOL
