One response to “This Day in Doping: The Wall Street Journal series”

  1. Michael Lipson

    It is clearly prposterous that any kind of drug was realated to my brother’s natural athleticism. A man who never smoked, drank or used a single drug. He was a purist/scienttist intensely interested in health and a high quality body to be so foolish. He was literally terrified of needles and any type of drug. His last invention was a non-invasive blood glucose monitor, that used a small laser beam to ascertain the glucose in blood and quickly display it on the screen. Lance and a plethora of pro cyclists may have used this drug but my brother had no reason or inclination to even conceive of something quiye that outrageous. He had nothing to prove and while he was in local technical officer, or executine competitions, he strictly dreamed of the Tour, but reality dictated that at his age it would not be. He was a physicist with an MBA and 23 patents under his name. Doping on recreational cyclimg 4 days a week?. Draw your own conclsion. It would be like me doping to play softball on the weekends to impress my wife and kids. Silly at best. Lance was a hero to Jan, but more because he was an amzaing cyclist with a heart that pumped incredible amounts of blood which will not happen from dopping. I doubt there was an inference to my brother here, but be that as it may, I am left here his brother Michael to asuage such nonsense. Dope products for intellectual dopes, but alas my brothers IQ was not measurable. I will always love Jan, Your brother , Michael
