Comment on Gregg Germer: Why I Didn’t Dope by Name Min http://www.podiuminsight.com/2012/09/06/gregg-germer-why-i-didnt-dope/comment-page-1/#comment-15511 Mon, 24 Sep 2012 17:43:33 +0000 http://www.podiuminsight.com/?p=33675#comment-15511 Good read. Was in a similar position as yourself in the early 2000’s, and saw my situation and the sport the same way. I actually had good friend and house mate on the Flanders team when I was living in Belgium. In the end it was as much a financial decision as a moral decision for me. I took way more away from the sport by staying clean than I would have dirty with only a slightly better palmares. I think there are many North American’s that leave Belgium and the Ghent scene with a similar story.

In 1976 I did ride a bike TransAm with a John Bennett. Could it be the father of this young rider?

Comment on Myerson – On Racing Clean and The Impact of Doping On His Career by Michael Moule http://www.podiuminsight.com/2012/09/12/myerson-on-racing-clean-and-the-impact-of-doping-on-his-career/comment-page-1/#comment-15473 Sat, 15 Sep 2012 08:12:02 +0000 http://www.podiuminsight.com/?p=33776#comment-15473 Adam, thanks for this interview and for everything else you are putting out there lately (and thanks to Lyne for interviewing you). From my perspective the recent revelations are interesting but somewhat different. I’m a few months older than you and I raced at the top amateur level in the late 90s and early 2000s, while always working a full time job (still maintain my Cat 1 license). Based on my results and comparing myself to teammates and other peers, early on I estimated that if I quit working and trained full time, I could probably have been a successful America-based pro bringing home perhaps $10,000 per year. Influenced somewhat by responsibities resulting from buying a house and getting married, I chose to keep working while riding/racing just for fun. I’ve always had minor regrets and occasionally thought “what if…?”. Reading yours and other similar stories makes me glad I didn’t make the leap. Although I never got to the point where I had to make a choice, I can’t see myself doing anything but racing clean (I’ve never even tried recreational drugs).

Anyway, thanks again for your stories, here and on Twitter. By the way, we met a few times at races, mostly cross stuff, and you knew my sister Mary in the NE road scene in the early 90s.

-Michael
