from the WADA website – paragraph 8 of the “code”

..my cut and paste skills are limited but the list includes Modern Pentathlon for disciplines involving shooting, Motorcycling, Powerboating and also Bowling. (Note: I fixed it, chief)

Yes, bowling.

What the fuck? I thought bowling was inVENTed for beer consumption.. or vice versa… whatever. There you have it. Just further confirmation that Drunkcyclist.com and RideClean are good bedfellows…

full WADA list here…. makes for very boring reading….

Cheers… so you CAN race your bike after drinking… not that it would help you at all… just speaks to what my Big friend Jonny always says… “we are into performance DE-enhancing substances..”

  1. Back in my college days I had to take a phys ed elective. Keep in mind this was 1979. Pickins was slim, but they offered archery/ bowling. Well I figured the first semester I’d be shooting at shit; the second semester beer would be mere steps away. No brainer.

  2. During Old Pueblo in 2007, I was asked to “at least” finish my beer before continuing past the radio/EMT folk. So as to have two hands on the bars. Seeing as I was given a high five before rolling on, I’ll stick to the dirt racing.

  3. No, it’s CURLING that was invented for the purpose of drinking. In fact, I’m pretty sure the rule book requires you to be able to throw a stone with one hand while the other is holding a Molson…

  4. Fuck that. The day the rules say I gotta drink Molson is the day I go on the wagon.

  5. …hey…i did a drug test for work on monday…

    …no fucking traces of clenbuterol OR plasticizers in my system, god dammit !!!…
