    Abstract

    Sensitivity of the Athlete Blood Passport for blood doping could be improved by including total haemoglobin mass (Hb, but this measure may be unreliable immediately following strenuous exercise. We examined the stability of Hbfollowing ultra-endurance triathlon (3.8 km swim, 180 km bike, 42.2 km run). 26 male sub-elite triathletes, 18 Racers and 8 Controls, were tested for Hbusing CO re-breathing, twice 1-5 days apart. Racers were measured before and 1-3 h after the triathlon.
