The RideClean Team hosted this successful Arizona State Championship event at Phoenix's City Hall on Saturday, April 12, and provided a platform for Phoenix City Councilman Michael Johnson to meet the High Schoolers from the "Inconvenient Ride", an outreach project that allowed eight young people to ride bikes over 5,000 miles across the country to raise awareness about sustainability issues as part of a school project.
The event was "greened up" by the purchase of Clif Bar Cool Tags, with 100% of the money from the purchase of the tags going to Native Energy which builds wind turbines on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation.
RideClean wishes to thank all of it's sponsors and volunteers for their efforts to bring about this successful event.
In an ongoing effort to bring a positive message to youth athletes, RideClean and Arizona State University hosted a Discussion on Clean Sport at the ASU College of Business Auditorium, drawing students, cyclists, and triathletes. Featured speakers included Dr. John Kearney from the CORE Institute for Sports Medicine and Chris Dorris, noted performance coach and consultant. The addition of Genevieve Jeanson, former pro cyclist, and Brian Jennings, NFL Pro Bowl football player from the San Francisco 49'ers, lent a unique and powerful perspective to the event.

D'Hont to write about Ullrich
By Susan Westemeyer
Jef D'hont is writing another book, and this time he is taking on Jan Ullrich. His first book, published last year, set off a series of doping confessions and investigations. "Before the first book, Rudy Pevenage asked me, 'leave me out, and Jan, too, please. Because we both want to tell our stories ourselves.' I did what he asked – but they didn't. They haven't said anything so far. So I will."
This is why Dick Pound was not invited to the premiere of the latest Stallone movie:
By the way, HGH is not simply an amino acid, it is composed of 191 amino acids. All proteins are composed of amino acids and if all you were looking for was amino acids, you can get all 20 from brown rice and veggies without the use of pills. For example, most hormones are based off of cholesterol, but you don’t steroid users claiming: “I was only eating butter”?
Thanks to JR and Bryan H. for these links.

Corey suspected that he was "doing something wrong," but he trusted his dad and his trainer.
The kid hated needles. But it hardly mattered. About once a week he'd roll up his sleeve, expose his shoulder and feel the cold metal plunge into what little muscle he had there. He would scrunch up his face as if he had smelled something foul and often close his eyes until the contents of the syringe emptied into his bloodstream. Then he could return to his PlayStation 2.
