Paddy Power Offers Clean Urine to Giro d’ Italia Riders

It doesn’t come as a surprise to most of us anymore when Paddy Power Bookmaker decides to do a little media stunt under a large sports event. This time it was under the final stage of Giro d’ Italia in Ireland, which will now continue in Italy – Luckily for the organizers.

Paddy Power decided to make a little joke out of the bicycling sports shady reputation and past and had put up a little stand right after the finish line, where as you can see below, they offered 100% clean urine to the riders, ensuring that no one would get caught for doping. The stand was placed away from officials and other key people, so the riders actually had a legitimate shot at taking some clean urine.

Picture of the 100% clean urine that Paddy Power offered to the riders. We especially like the warning about not drinking the pee.

Paddy Power has not told us if any of the riders actually took advantage of the good offer, but we are quite sure that there are those among the riders that wish that they could have done it. Paddy Power has become synonym with being the naughty boy in the class and it is always quite entertaining to see what they have thought of.
