Anabolic steroids detected.

Usual BS response of “I never knowingly or intentionally took anything”.

Sounds like the positive came from re-analysis of an earlier sample using carbon radio isotope testing.

As an environmental scientist, I love forensic analysis using isotopes. Fascinating stuff that can tell you a lot of things not evident in "regular" data. But costly, so in this case it took a biopassport irregularity to trigger the testing.

Regarding KFC, Kentucky Fried Chicken is tasty, but it's bad for the waistline. And full of saturated fat which wreaks havoc on our lipid metabolism and makes us even fatter, more insulin resistant, and generally less well, so there is that, too. Maybe better to ban them.

I've been a huge fan of KC since I watched her win her first two Nats in Portland. Always believed she raced clean. Now, at 42, well older athletes have been known to turn to drugs to extend their careers forever. Female riders supported by spouses over their careers drugging? The French rider who rode until almost 50. Forget her name. We also live in a time where the long list of banned substances are in all kinds of foods and over the counter medications, often not well documented. The possibility of unknowing injesting something within the detection window over near two decades at the top of the field and being tested many, many times just doesn't sound completely remote to me. And as she stated n her CyclingNews interview, it was 5 months before she learned she had been positive and she had no way of retracing all she consumed.

Maybe she's lying. Maybe she's tellIng the truth. Either way, its a sad way to end a storied career.

Oh, I'll write "KC" and keep that "Food" out of her name!

Just weird how all these tests only find athletes who accidently ingested something and never any actual dopers.....

And if you go back and look at KFC's statements re: Betsema and her failed test, well....too bad Katie.

Suffice to say, I don't believe her.

This one makes me feel like when good ol' Tyler got popped in 2004 shortly following his Olympic gold in the TT. He just seemed like a good, trustworthy guy. I liked him, just like KC.

I want to believe. But we all know how that ended up.

^ As you stated, similar feeling as with Hamilton. I hoped it wasn't true but it's Groundhogs Day in the cycling world yet again so, sorry KFC, I don't believe you. Wish I could but...

Suffice to say that the first “standard “ test detected nothing. Goes to show how useless standard testing regimes are. It was only through a bio passport anomaly that the second more sophisticated test got triggered. Basically she was caught through a fluke. Also explains the 5 months delay.

Appreciate OC's deeper dive.
Apologies if this is confrontational, but CK, if you dismiss this rider thanks to nth level investigation, are you still OK with 100 others who have not been subjected to this level?
Or maybe I am the naive one.
Little Jamaica, who has had closed internal training for many years owns the women's fast twitch olympics.
ROC dances and dodges and wins a ton of medals
The US top athletes are not at all beyond further scrutiny, don't get me wrong.
Just sayin it's rather too easy to bash the latest snagged rider/other sport athlete while ignoring the big picture.

PS if Bruce's silver metal daughter gets busted, that's it for me. But how could she?
Optimist here still believes.

But there wasn’t a “nth level investigation”. Something in her bio-passport came up abnormal, and based on that, they went back and re-tested her sample with a more expensive test.

That is the way the system is supposed to work…something she submitted turned up a red flag and they investigated further.

Ah, so IIUC all riders’ older specimens received this “nth level” evaluation.
