Los Angeles Olympics - Cycling

Road Cycling - 1984 Los Angeles Olympics - Mens Individual Road Race
The USAs Alexi Grewal, right, out-sprints Canadas Steve Bauer to the line in a thrilling finish at the 190.2km course at Lake Forest, California.
Grewal was the first American to win an Olympic gold medal in road cycling, however his mere participation in the race was controversial.
He had tested positive for a stimulant only 10 days before the Olympics and was suspended for 30 days by the US Cycling Federation and dropped from the Olympic team. However he appealed the suspension, noting that the tests were not sophisticated enough to tell the difference between the drug he had tested positive for and the albuterol he took for asthma. Reinstated, he was able to race at Los Angeles.
The US team won a record nine Olympic cycling medals, including four golds, at the 1984 Games, although it was later revealed that a third of their cyclists had received team-sanctioned blood transfusions. The practice was not made illegal by the IOC until 1985, although a test was not devised to detect it until years later.
