These figures within themselves offer little clarity without comparing them to the other top placed racers. Even Parisotto stated they looked suspicious but without follow up they are not conclusive. It seems to me the latest craze in the comments section of cycling forums is playing hangman before filling in all the spaces regarding PEDs.

Bob you are right as usual. But to me it seems CH took a page out of lance's playbook by publishing his blood values. A little to overconfident and a little too unwise to know when just to hang back and not go on the attack. Just bask in your win and ride off into retirement. Lance should have done it in 2005 and horner should have done it the day he won the vuelta. Without making his blood values public knowledge. The moment he did that the shiiiit storm started

These tests aren't much use, really. In a hospital they take patient blood samples several times a day to figure out trends, and even then are often speculating. Taking samples once every few weeks or months is so fraught with variables that it is nearly impossible to figure out what is really going on. And applying generalities to a specific person with very few samples is very, very speculative. Probably the only useful measure is the incident hematocrit. And that is not any better than the 50% rule they had previously. The BP is a marketing tool, not a scientific study.
