On the flip-side of women on the verge ...
the Canadian sensation, Jeanson, may be racing again in 2007. It seems USADA has backed off their lifetime ban of Genevieve and worked out some deal where she gets a 2-year slap, instead. The hubub is, of course, hinging on the perceived inaccuracies of the EPO test.
"In the case of severe exercised-induced proteinuria (like in Jeanson's case), there is a serious concern about the validity of the EPO test." - Dr. Joris Delanghesigh.
"I have never in my entire career taken EPO, or any other banned substance,” said Jeanson. “After the USADA informed me that I had tested positive in July 2005, I did some research to figure out how this could have happened. I secured the help of a reputable professor and researcher at Ghent University in Belgium, Dr. Joris Delanghe. I am very grateful that he graciously offered to investigate my case.”
Jeanson would swing down to the early February Arizona races a few years back. This lithe little creature - bubbly, smiling, and a stone-cold killer on the bike. I spoke with her a few times and ... remember thinking to myself ~ ah ... a clean one. But what do you know of someone in a handful of minutes?
Then i met her "coach". oh man, that dude was 10 layers of wack-cake.
Was she doping? Was she guilty?
Jeanson was also implicated in a 2003 Canadian investigation in which Montreal orthopedic surgeon Dr. Maurice Duquette was charged with illegally distributing EPO to athletes. Duqutte named Jeanson in court documents as an athlete to whom he had administered performance-enhancing drugs. [VN]
