Oh, this is too much. Really.

Björn Leukemans tested positive for testosterone in an out-of-competition doping control shortly before the World Championships in September. Team Predictor-Lotto immediately suspended him pending the results of the B-sample.

…According to HLN.be, his urine showed a ratio of 6 to 1 for testosterone/epitestosterone. The normal ratio is 4 to 1.

The “normal” ratio is 1:1. 4:1 is not normal. If you’re beyond that, we’re talking suspicious.

But this kid can’t be stopped with anything resembling facts.

Doctors deny Leukemans’ sex life responsible for test

In another attempt to explain his positive doping test for testosterone, Björn Leukemans has said that he was having sex when the doping controllers arrived to take his urine sample in an out-of-competition test shortly before the Worlds in September. However, anti-doping experts have laughed this explanation off. While not addressing the specific case, Wilhelm Schänzer of the anti-doping lab in Cologne, Germany, said, “If you ask whether sex has an influence on testosterone levels, I say: sex has nothing to do with synthetic testosterone.” Hans Cooman of the Vlaamse Gemeenschap [Flemish Community in Belgium], who took the sample from Leukemans, confirmed to Sportwereld that “The natural testosterone [level] may perhaps be higher [while having sex], but I do not see how sex can influence synthetic testosterone.”

According to Sportwereld, Leukemans’ A sample was first tested in Gent, where scientists found a too high epitestosterone/testosterone ratio: 5.7:1, with the legal threshold being 4:1. The lab then sent the sample to Cologne, Germany, which has the proper equipment to conduct the carbon isotope test for testosterone, determining if the hormone is naturally made by the body or synthetic. Leukemans has now said that he will request that the B-sample be tested in Barcelona.

Well, at least he’s trying…

On the same page I linked above, Iban Mayo’s non-negative from last year at the Tour is still getting shuffled around. Maybe someday they’ll figure this shit out.

The scheduled re-examination of Iban Mayo’s B sample set to be carried out on Wednesday has been delayed, according to UCI anti-doping manager Anne Gripper. The Spanish rider returned a non-negative A result for EPO during the Tour de France and was due to have the counter-analysis done this week in the Châtenay-Malabry laboratory.

…”The analysis of the B sample was conducted by the Gent lab. It was inconclusive. They sent the results (actually a photo of the electrophoresis process) to the Sydney lab for a second opinion. The sample itself was not sent to Sydney. Sydney confirmed the inconclusive result and suggested that the remainder of the B sample be analysed in the Paris lab to obtain a conclusive result.”

And then again, maybe they won’t.

  1. …what a dummy…instead of the “i’m such a man, i’m dripping w/ the stuff” defense, he shoulda gone w/ having his girlfriend testify to the “ya, bjorny is such a weeny boy, i slapped three patches on his heine’ w/out him knowing cuz it’s the only way he can get it up for me” defense…

    …just a thought, but you can see my potential in the jurisprudence system…

  2. The ‘playa’ defense. Nice. A great sport is morphing into a bad comedy show before our eyes.
