Thin P

Father Hennepin's computer and files have been seized by WADA. Apparently they have confiscated a list of Father Hennepin's patients. So far the list doesn't implicate any of the riders directly, but the list does appear to make use of thinly veiled nickname's for patients. Thin P for instance is likely a reference for Skinny Phil.

So far, none of the ingredients listed on Father Hennepin's elixirs have matched those on the banned substances list, but the investigation is ongoing. One thing is clear, drinking the night before a race is either the strategy of madmen or a brilliant plan. Sometimes genius and madness are tough to differentiate.
