This is a few weeks old but just saw it, very interesting.

In case you don't want to read it the article states that Ricardo Ricco on the TDF was busted because the drug manufacturer put a molecule in the substance he consumed to help anti-doping authorities detect its illegal use.

If you can get the manufacturers in cahoots with anti-doping agencies I believe a big step forward can be made. Not perfect but progress for sure.
