I love it when something falls into my lap that required little more than a cut & paste job on my part. Thank you Peter “beer can” North. You made art today.

Subject: Forgotten CyclingNews photo
Seems CyclingNews is not playing fair. They did not post the correct photo with the story. Maybe you can help straighten things out.
No problem. Folks, this is the photo they should have run.
Well done, Peter. Well done indeed. From the Cyclingnews.com piece:
Crater, 32, tested positive for Carboxy THC, a metabolite of marijuana in the class of Cannabinoids, in a sample collected on August 1, 2010, at the Tour of Elk Grove, in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
Cannabinoids are listed as Specified Substances and are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Cycling Union (UCI), both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the WADA Prohibited List. Use of Specified Substances, under certain circumstances, can result in a reduced sanction from the standard two-year period of ineligibility.
Of all the crap folks are using for a competitive edge, I simply cannot believe marijuana is on the list. Seriously. It’s a waste of time and resources to test for THC. Look for things that matter. Ignore the rest.by
