Interesting Article on Tramadol in Cycling and Other Sports (WSJ)

This article is interesting to me mainly for what it explains about how they decide what substances should be banned, and why cyclists or at least their managers would want to have a drug banned. If there's no performance enhancement, OK. But I'd say being able to not abandon the next day is a sort of performance enhancement. What seems clear to me after this year of delayed startup for skating is that Tramadol makes some people l "loopy," and for others, it's a disappointment. :o) I took various pain killers in fear of how great they might me feel. I still never felt amazing! Oh well.

Anyway, not a bad article to remind us all to be careful what we take before going on the road in a car or on wheels.

I wonder what percentage of drivers on the road are actively under the influence of an opiod, alcohol, or other performance disenhancer.

I usually don't like reading the comments section, but even early on there are some funny responses.

Inline Skating Pre-Teens Call to Help Sixty-Year-Old Snoozer Driving on Drugs: Now Who Do You Want to Keep Off the Streets?

Here's one reason to keep street skaters on the road where they belong if they have the skills (just like cyclists who have the skills, and automobilists, too). That way, they can keep an eye on the neighborhood and watch out for the safety of adults who can't control themselves and go out driving around after first buying, then using drugs.

A couple of recent articles say that the Spanish Cycling Federation, Real Federación Española de Ciclismo (RFEC), will be pursuing santions against riders and others involved in blood doping in the Operación Puerto cycling doping case. Most thought that the Spanish federation had let it drop, and some were disappointed in this decision.
