Ha! I found it!

I found the reference to ibuprofen as a banned substance. On page 227 of Bike Cult, author David Perry refers to the irony of the makers of Nuprin sponsoring the 1992 US Olympic Cycling Team when their product contained "the banned substance ibuprofen." And that was after ibbies became an over the counter drug.

By the way, no one really calls them ibbies. But it's a damn sight shorter to say than ibuprofen. So feel free to start.

I guess this voids all my world records.
