Paralympic Cycling

The Velodrome has probably the best reputation of all the venues for the atmosphere. Only 6,000 in there, but all sat close to the track and able to raise the roof. The atmosphere in there was fantastic, really very special. And the athletes? Guys like this, riding with one leg only, complete the 500m time trial at a speed averaging over 50 kph. To read more about the venue experience, I'd direct you again to Diamond Geezer

Do guys like this have less or more incentive for doping? Either way, I admire them...
