It seems to me that anti-doping efforts in pro cycling suffer from the same catch 22 as the “war on terror.” If you catch any dopers, you can say, “See! The system is working! We’re catching the cheaters!” And if you don’t catch any dopers, you say, “See! The system is working! Our sport is getting cleaner!” No matter the outcome, the system is “working.” By what metric could we NOT achieve this “heads I win, tails you lose” outcome?
