Hmm, climbing hard lots sounds a bit like training to me. It's just not right that a professional athelete should be engaging in that kind of behaviour.
And remember that most of them are from the

Drug riddled? If you know anything about cycling you would know that, in comparison to so many other teams, Euskatel have had a surprisingly low number of drug cases. Also worth noting the number of Australians who miss drug tests due to being out ofEurope during certain pre-season testing periods. For example that little hamster Cadel.

Why not try training yourself? A bit of aerobic exercise, a bit more bouldering, a bit more climbing, a bit less time putting pointless comments on the internet. If this achievement is of such importance to you why don't you spend a little more time focusing on your own development rather than trying to justify why others haven't achieved anything. At the end of the day, even if other people are taking drugs, you have to ask yourself two questions, what did you climb today? and What have you done on Grit? I suspect the answer to both is nothing.
