I’ll reveal something important. Last year there was a rider, quite a famous rider, who we were considering for the team but we didn’t sign him because our experts and our doctors looked at his Biological Passport data and thought there was something wrong with it, with irregularities in there. But one of the other major teams in the peloton did sign him and the UCI was okay with it and now this rider is racing.
JV says the same thing happened with Thomas Dekker who was later banned based on positive EPO tests rather than his obviously doped biopassport.
Hopefully these examples are the exception rather than the rule. However, the opacity of the current system prevents anyone from actually knowing.
