I think cyclocosm.com summed it up pretty well:

=======================

Finally, today, Genevieve Jeanson was handed down a lifetime ban from USADA for an EPO positive at the '05 Tour de 'Toona. The French Canadian, racing under US license after losing her Canadian one by being "unfit to race" before the '03 World Championships, missed out on the regular two-year ban because she had previously skipped a dope control after the '04 Fleche-Wallonne. Though she maintains her innocence, Jeanson has come back with the old **"you can't ban me, I'm retiring," shtick. Her actual statement:

"I don't want anything to do with cycling. I'm tired of…repeating that I have never taken EPO or any banned substance."**

Believe me, Genny, not nearly as tired as we are of hearing it. What really intrigues me about this case is that now both winners of the 1999 Mt. Washington Hill Climb have been banned from the sport (the other being Tyler Hamilton). I wonder if Audi will be repossessing those A4s they so prominantly gave away as prizes? For that matter, will the Mt. Washington race committee take Jeanson's women's record, set in 2002, off the books? My guess is no, which makes for just another reason not to do that hideous, hideous race.

i say leave drugs in road racing.it makes it cooler.

insane athletes,killer bikes,horrible clothes,great coffee,beer, and drugs. thats road racing right?

all the really dangerous stuff has been taken out, it's easy to test for, and screws you up…. back in the era of merckx, and earlier, the whole peloton was on amphetamines. there's direct quotes from pre-WW2 winners of the tour de france about how they were drinking cocaine based patent medicine tonics for a boost of energy.

that dumb b*tch was the same idiot who attacks her own teammates at races, races for herself and is a discredit to the entire sport. She got what she deserved.

No sympathy simon; she's an arrogant little price now that's a known cheat. You've seen enough of that crap to know the score
