I suspect they're guilty (nearly everyone in pro cycling that is - not just Ullrich and Basso), but let's see the evidence. I'm no pro cycling insider but it sure seems like the politics run rampant between all of the organizations involved in organizing or monitoring the sport. I'm with Cyclocosm on this one...why can't anyone get a look at the actual documents in question?
Another T-Mobile spokesman, Stefan Wagner, told Germany's n-tv television that the team was acting on information indicating "that there was contact between the two riders and Rudi Pevenage and the Spanish doctor ... who is at the center of this doping story."
Asked whether T-Mobile would consider cutting ties with Ullrich completely, he replied "certainly ... we are now demanding evidence of his innocence."
"If this evidence can be provided, then we have a completely new situation," he said. "If it cannot be provided, nothing will change about this situation."
So let me get this straight. There's evidence that the riders came in contact with a doctor who may be implicated in a separate doping case. This is not evidence of doping use. Basically the riders are being asked to prove a negative.
Again, I'm going to guess that they did it, but, what if they didn't? Do we have enough to work with here? I don't think so. And, if we do, then let's see it.
