    That would be massively expensive and take forever. What's to say they even still have all of the samples? USADA was notorious in boxing for losing samples or flat-out not testing them.

    You dont find it a bit odd that TJ popped for EPO
    But somethings up because they wont test everyone for it?
    Ever thought that maybe they had some evidence against him to justify the extra cost?

    you dont find it a bit odd that they waited this long to test for EPO when the accusations have been going for years⁇

    do u even know how much it would cost for an epo test⁇

    At the moment it costs a bit more then 4x's the cost of the default test. And thats just for EPO nothing else.

    The lab still have all the samples and will do for ten years

    And the other bit you just totally made up. Bearing in mind usada dont actually have the samples it would be pretty hard for then to lose them

    The lab hold the samples. They are not usada
