Could you put this in simpler words for someone who doesn't understand much about the body mechanics (i.e. me)?

Neither do I, Fus. ;)

What he's saying there is that blood oxygenation methods - i.e. EPO injections and transfusions - are now more detectable via the bio-passport and even the days of microdosing look to be coming to an end. The risks have increased.

The new frontier is with muscle enhancement drugs - the domain of these new peptide hormones and GW501516, Telmisartan, AICAR - either because they're not yet detectable or because they're much harder to catch. It's no longer about oxygenating your blood but rather about enabling your muscles to work harder for longer within the blood norms.

So the gains are more, shall we say marginal, but they still represent a significant gain on your rivals and the beginnings of another arms race.
