Just how much do performance enhancing drugs enhance one's performance? Is it 10% more for 10% longer or 1% more for 1% longer or no extra gain in speed but they enable you to keep up your best for longer? Can the effect be quantified?

We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence
I have seen figures suggested for EPO would give an improvement in power output at anaerobic threshold in the region of 10-15% - which is obviously very substantial.
It should be noted that something like EPO does not work on everyone to the same extent - some people are supposed to respond better to it than others - this gives a lie to the "why don't we legalise PEDs and let the athletes take whatever as they'll all be on the same level" argument.
