Un-doping with fellow EBVCers


Dana Albert and Steve Kromer up their red blood cell count with barbecued meat.

“The quantities of caffeine I use are well within the legal limits–but that’s actually the beauty of my system. Imagine racing or training after ingesting several cups of double espresso. You can bet you’d feel something. Based on my routine non-consumption of caffeine, a single cup of standard house coffee is enough to give me the same effect. You see, I have altered my body so completely that I’ve created a freakish lack of tolerance for caffeine. A normal serving of double espresso would probably have serious physical and even psychoactive effects on me.”
