Most people involved in cycling claim they are against doping, but when it is time to take a real stand, do they act according to principle, or opportunism? Do they just think it is “cool” to wear the “Doper’s Suck” socks and t-shirt, or are they willing to make a stand against doping?
I have been an IMBA (International Mountain Biking Association) member for a long time, with a few absences, and I have always slept well knowing that they were out there fighting the good fight. Although they continue with this for the most part, over the last few years I have noticed a disturbing change with them. The recent article by Trina Ortega illustrates why I am becoming concerned.
