Spot Testing Is A Waste Of Money

I read that US Cycling is going to start a whereabouts and spot testing program for age groupers.

Perhaps they don’t realize that many of the top athletes (certainly in my AG) spent most of their adult lives successfully avoiding such testing?

Here’s what might work…

Have an elite licence and want to collect prize money at any race, or compete at prestige events (National or World Champs), then you contribute, say, $1,200 per annum towards a full bio passport.

Have an amateur licence and want to race prestige events then you contribute $250 per annum towards a blood bio passport.

An up-coming piece on Endurance Corner will address common objections that we hear. I’ll tweet that up, when live.

Pay attention to the people that say it can’t be done, or isn’t necessary.
