Speedskater Sergei Lisin caught using epo after a 10k pb race. 

Using epo helps for longdistance and middledistance athletes, that a thing not many people will denie, by how much? that is an different story.A recent example gives a good view on this. A russion speedskater named Sergei Lisin, number 673 on the worldranking list, races in oktober during the russion championships, which he won, a new pb with 35 seconds, this at 33 years of age. He got a 13:23,57 for that 10k. Time wise that was an improvement of 4.2%. That is more than one lap of the track of 400 faster. Of course says an example of one not so much. And using a drug doesn't do the same for everybody, one has more advantage than the other, but still this a nice example of an older athlete, who proberly did not improve anymore in a natural way, but his epo use made him this much faster. Him being caught, if not we didn't know ;-) him awaits a suspension. He proberly will never skate again. He by the way did skate on his own, he was not part of any team in an organised way or something like that.
