Caffeine Suppositories: Doping

With every athlete this side of the Atlantic being accused of performance enhancing supplements, I am considering joining the fray.  I read a book about an Irish cyclist who rode in the Tour in the late 80’s early 90s.  He use caffeine suppositories and said they worked quite well.

I am thinking 1 might be helpful for my middle of the nite run for Hood To Coast.  A massive caffiene kick – and hey, at least I am not using steroids? 

Where can I pick these up?

    They’re called coffee beans and you can usually pick them up at your local coffee shop.

    I want pure caffiene – how will the beans be soaked into my bloodstream? – if I use bean crustaceans etc will be left over…

  4. Keith says:

    Your rectum will extract the vital essence from the beans and will discard the husks during the periodic evacuation procedures.

    If that doesn’t sound good, you could try these:

    Do you REALLY want to do that? It’s been my experience with HTC that “evacuation” needs come fast and frequently.

    I’d opt for a pinch of ground coffee packed inside your lower lip like a big old ‘chaw of tabaccy.

    All I got to say is : cant wait to hear the outcome. I do admire you putting this one out there.

    Hey Sean, you maniac. So, what did you end up doing and how did HTC go? I drove by the BnA house today and saw the van in front with the number and had to check in…
