I know in cycling they regulate your blood very closely. Top cyclists used to try and take performance enhancing drugs(epo,probenacide). How do triathlons work, do the top tri guys give blood samples or is it pretty much open to whatever? Just asking because I never hear about drug problems w/ tri's.

The pros do have to pee in the jars..forget the exact protocol, if it is automatically top so many or random. There have been some caught in past, such as Spencer Smith, of course they all come up with excuses such as they ate a hamburger that had hormones in it from the beef...yeah..want to buy a bridge?
