Imagine someone telling you that by taking a certain drug you could win a single event and be three times richer, famous for life in your country—and it won’t hurt anyone. What would you say? There’s a wide range of ethics among the riders.

Or you can swoop along an open single-track before testing your skill on a steep descent.
