Are world cup downhill riders tested for steroids?

i think that podium finishers and a random rider or 2 are tested at every UCI race. steroid use is screened in the test and not legal. not 100% sure though.

here's the 100 page UCI Drug Regulations Document if you want to really get educated. and maybe some others can chime in on it.

I've been suspicious of Fairclough for a while now.

Typically those that get busted get caught with THC in their system, I havent heard of anyone losing out or being disqualified for anything but THC with regards to MTB

Only way that Fairclough (and most DHers) would get screwed is if they started banning Alcohol as a performance enhancing drug!

That kind of definition doesn't just happen. Needles is looking pretty swole too.

forget 'normal' drugs. I would imagine DHers getting off on beta blockers.

I heard that Sam Hill drinks some liquid pressed from a stone before each race.

I'm of the opinion that drug use isn't prevalent in DH because there is so little money/fame to be gained. If you could earn millions and become a household name by winning we'd see more of it.

I heard he presses it from the stone with his bare hands.

I remember when Chris DelBosco was stripped of his National Champion title for testing posetive for THC. That would suck! I think it's the only reason Duncan Riffle has a National Champ title.

Beta Blockers sound like the DH drug but wouldn't it ruin all the fun of Sh**ting yr pants on a ripper? it would be like a walk in the park.

well, if after a dose of beta blockers, you still get a rush from the course,then you know that's the gnarliest ride on the planet.
but seriously a mild enough dose to keep the jitters under control but not lose the edge. yeah, i can imagine a few guys aiming for the top popping a taste of the BB..

Duncan won another one if I remember correctly. I think he got 5th at that race, he was top American though

JD Swanguen got his 3rd place taken away at the US nat's for having "THC Metabolite" in his system. if anything, that would make him slower

Bootes' test was a positive for a 'party' drug, not a PED like steroids.
