Well someone finally asked the question to Aldon Baker in an interview that is currently playing on TV in Australia about drugs in MX.

Brendan Bell from MXTV asked Aldon the question on tonight's show.

MXTV usually upload each segment onto their YouTube page in the following days.

As soon as it is up I will post the link,

Great question and great answer.

A link to the YouTube Channel below if you want to keep an eye on it yourself waiting for it to come out.

I would JB, but it will be online in the next day or so, probably should have waited for it to be uploaded before I posted smile

I think it is a pretty interesting topic in the sport.

Baker pretty much said drugs in MX are pretty much a waste of time, partly due to the fact that the races are only 40 minutes long. He also said he is one of the people pushing for more testing and it sucks that his name gets dragged into the topic every time it is mentioned.

Thought it was great that he put himself out there and answered the question, trying to find out now when it will be uploaded.

Will have to wait a few days, will be uploaded early next week,

Feel free to delete the thread and I can re post when the video becomes available. Though a drugs in MX topic has to be better than another Euro V America thread right???

Maybe we could turn this into both a Euro V America topic that leads into a 2 v 4 stroke topic to keep the off season flowing.

He probably isn't giving them HGH. If I was to guess the reason why he is successful I would say that it is because he is an excellent personal trainer and let's face it. He is teachnig a bunch of hillbilly home schooled motocrossers how to train and practice effectively.

I wonder what drug RV takes to make him pass 3-4 guys on the first lap? I want some!

HGH and steroids were never, ever about enhancing performance on the field, or bike.

They're 100% amazingly effective at reducing injury time. Oh, sprained ankle? Do a cycle, and you're better in 2 weeks instead of 4-6.

How about Adrian Peterson coming back from his blown out knee? Came back 3-4 months early, and had the best season of his career.

The bio-passport is supposed to stop a lot of this, so for non union sports, it should be put in place. The unionized sports try to cover up cheating.

Sounds like the guy who accuses his girl of cheating when he himself is cheating.

No one is being fooled Mx is too small everyone knows everything that is going on all the time.

They do race there, though.

If I remember correctly, Colin Edwards, Nicky Hayden (whom Aldon has worked with), Ben Spies, PJ Jacobson, Josh Hayes...I could go on for awhile, all have ridden in Holland.

Edit: And while your home-body Casey Stoner had a "mysterious" issue with fatigue, and had to quit for half a season. Heavy rumours were that he wasn't able to cycle anymore because of the bio-passport.

Locdawg, It's all about getting back from injury quicker.

You're hurt? Do a cycle, and your downtime is cut in 1/2, or by a 1/4. In a sport where you're a millionaire if you just make the CUT....it's cheap insurance.

Make no mistake, in "those" sports, it's ALLLLLLL about the $$$$$$.

He's (Tiger) had a nagging knee injury for the last several years. Golf, with the twist when swinging is a very minute sport. A slight miscue on the T can mean hundreds of feet down on the green. A strained muscle, or weak knee can be very detrimental to your swing.

Think of it like trying to shift your bike with a broken foot, yea, it can work, but it's not going to work the best, and missing a shift can be painful.


PED's in MX do work; again, not for on track performance per se, more so for injury and muscle recovery. Think of it as, you usually fatigue the 2nd moto....on PED's, your strength doesn't go up, but it doesn't fade.

As long as sport exists in any form, someone will be taking something. Many, many weekend warrior hockey players, or baseball players or gym goers for that matter take things.

As much as I agree with what you are saying. I don't agree with your last comment. They go to Germany for Regenokine injections and stem cell. The US is slowly bringing it here. It's a form of stem cell and protein extraction and injection. Since part of the US is slightly behind in this technology a lot of US athletes have ventured over to help with any issues they might have. This helps with the underlying issue but it doesn't help with the rest of the recovery. That's when PED's come into effect. PS, I can't believe at how much Aldon's comment is a joke. MX is only 40 minutes, PED's would not help. Training is an every day lifestyle.
