Jimmy Casper positive for corticoids

Two-time Tour de France Lanterne Rouge Jimmy Casper has tested positive for corticoids during the 2008 Tour de France. Authorities contend that he did not have a Therapeutic Use Exemption on file, although Casper has claimed that he did.

He was suspended by his team Agritubel pending a resolution of the matter.


There's a verrrrrrry intereschtink article in three parts by Oliver Starr on his blog Starr Trek. It concerns the Floyd Landis scandal, which you know I take an interest in. Oliver is a biochemist as well as a former pro cyclist. It's called "Floyd Landis and the Magic Water Bottle". You'll have to dig out part one and two from his archives. I commend it you your kind attention.
Interesting piece by a knowledgeable writer, thank you!
