I barely believe this…
“Michigan masters racer suspended for EPO use
Neal Schubel, a 45-year-old masters racer from Saginaw, Michigan, has accepted a two-year suspension from competition after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency found that he had purchased and used synthetic erythropoietin (EPO).
According to a USADA announcement issued Wednesday, Schubel’s suspension began on November 18, 2010, the day he accepted the sanction, but his results have been negated all the way back to August of 2006. Schubel readily admitted the violation when confronted with evidence in the agency’s possession.
Under UCI and USADA rules, Schubel is also required to return any prizes earned over that four-year period, but a review of his results posted at USA Cycling’s website suggests that he needn’t worry about that aspect of the Doping Code.”
Here are those stellar results…

Alright! doping to finish midpack at a masters 45 race. Dude, this guy totally needs a $15,000 bike from my shop.
In very impressive serious news, I forgot to tell you all that I attended a pro triathlete party in Colorado Springs during my time there. Let me tell you how it goes. First of all I show up 4 non utah beers into it. Then, while everybody enjoys their Michelob ultra, my compadres make sure that I don’t have a hand without a beer or glass of wine in it. Everybody reaches the same level of wastedness after about 2 hrs….then we all watch Pink Floyds the wall while I drink tequila and the other party goers drink 12 glasses of water so they can sober up enough to drive home.
You may think this is gay, but I did ask the very serious question of “is it more important to have aero wheels or lighter wheels for your average road course/hilly road course”. Do you know the answer? Well let me tell you, every single person at the party answered correctly….Aero. And without hesitation. So, poke fun if you wish, but they are all faster than you.
Alright, you may need MSDREVIL to translate, but all I have to say is listen for the car alarm (chirp chirp) at the end.
Let me also say that the Flight of the Pigs happened on Friday. And I was not there. I hear it was a bit cool. Here is the 2009 video that honestly I’m AMAZED that I’m not seen in. Jesus, I was loud, intoxicated, riding with Lance/Freedom Crew/Durango crew. WTF?
