If you're going to cheat and want to get away with it, then you've got to find the labs that are making scientific leaps, the ones that are steps ahead of the testing. Who those are and where those are, I couldn't begin to tell you.
That's a good point. Lance Armstrong didn't dodge tests for years by getting mail order juice from a Dominican pharmacy. The second article I linked to says that Dominican players accounted for half of all failed PED tests (at the time of the article). Is it because they have easy access to the raw materials, but little access to info. on how to beat tests? Seems plausible. Who knows?
