But taking one shot of unesterified testosterone would not even improve performance. Bottom line, I can't see how he cheated or in fact I don't see why he would have taken the testosterone.
A rider isn't tested everyday.
Each stage winner is tested, as well as some guys picked randomely. Landis was tested positive the day he won the stage. It could very well be the only time he was tested in the TdF.
That said, all these guys have masking agents.
I still think someone wants Landis' head.
