    I have found being a blood donor useful as you get a regular check of haemoglobin, blood pressure etc.
    When I started donating I found that my haemoglobin generally sat at about 130, the cut off mark for whole blood donation for Aust. Red Cross Blood Service.
    Ferritin level is well in normal range.
    But it does raise the question should I have started blood doping early in my sporting career?

      I spent many years playing rugby union and rowing before I was cycling, and I know where my talents lie.
      Let’s say that as a cyclist I’m a fine rugby player, and no change to my iron/haemoglobin/ferritin levels is going to improve that.
