MADRID, Spain (AFP) — Tour de France champion Alberto Contador has been suspended from cycling for one year and stripped of his 2010 Tour de France victory, officials in Spain said Wednesday.
It's very hard to change your physical make up. But you can change your brain, learn things that are tangible or concrete i.e. like opening the air ways for mountain stages like I think some have learned by using drugs.
A lactic acid test is a blood test that measures the level of lactic acid made in the body. Most of it is made by muscle tissue and red blood cells. When the oxygen level in the body is normal, carbohydrate breaks down into water and carbon dioxide. When the oxygen level is low, carbohydrate breaks down for energy and makes lactic acid.
Lactic acid levels get higher when strenuous exercise or other conditions-such as heart failure, a severe infection (sepsis), or shock-lower the flow of blood and oxygen throughout the body. Lactic acid levels can also get higher when the liver is severely damaged or diseased, because the liver normally breaks down lactic acid.
Very high levels of lactic acid cause a serious, sometimes life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis. Lactic acidosis can also occur in a person who takes metformin (Glucophage) to control diabetes when heart or kidney failure or a severe infection is also present.

If there is anything we know to be true in cycling, is there is always someone who's out there who will throw out the negative, "nay say" something or someone that their way is better. Most of the time, it's your trash talking opponents who, denoting a person or systems underground (even in sight) by opening an academic debate. The higher their level of degree, the higher the level of their debate.
That opened a can of worms for debate, some where PhD's sitting within our view. I will never forget, that I paid my own way to a dealer to promote his new gym, I saw and smelled a rat, so I even refused to show him and his audience what we where really doing Noraxon sEMG, knowing full well they intend on doing their own thing. Funny how that works!
It was stamped on his forehead! It was only days later, after going home, that they where not one of our dealers. In fact the owners even broke apart and both do their own things?
