I can see the attraction. I live at 5000 feet above sea level and often ride up to 12,000 feet elevation. I'm currently in Austin, Texas -- elevation 500 feet. When I ride here the limiting factor is not my lungs, but the strength of my legs. I feel like freaking Superman.

I'm shocked by this new dopping case. I'm a chilean cycling enthusiast, enjoy road riding every weekend and believe admire people, like professional cyclers, make huge efforts to conquer their goals. As part of a road cycling club I personally hope pro's show the right way of competing and be an example to our society of effort and rewards.
