In a recent turn of events, it seems that Werner Franke, the German anti-doping campaigner, has now filed a complaint against Gerolsteiner's former doctors Mark Schmidt and Ernst Jakob for breaking laws on drugs control, treatment of the body and issuing false prescriptions:

No English sources as yet that I've found.

Vengeance, it would seem, is Franke's...  :D

    Sorry, search. I was away watching Dunkirk. Came back and I just saw a photo while looking for some more sources and I said to myself 'funny, that looks like Werner Franke, the anti-doping guy, oh wait..."

    Bassons has got his "Tony tough" groove on in today's Le Monde:



    http://www.lemonde.fr/sport/article/2013/04/11/le-combat-sans-fin-du-heros-de-l-antidopage_3158571_3242.html

    Bassons' appeal before the AFLD was successful:

    http://www.lexpress.fr/actualite/sport/dopage-christophe-bassons-totalement-blanchi_1245909.html

    The news came from the former pro himself rather than the FFC (the French cycling authority). ;)

    According to the AFLD, the FFC failed to notify the rider in writing and a telephone call was therefore insufficient.

    Ironically, points out the article and not without relish, Bassons finished tenth in a UCI race last weekend and qualified for the World Championships, in which he will have to wear an official FFC national jersey.  :D

    Matt White receives six-month ban for doping

    But with the ban dating back to October 13, the suspension had passed by April 13 - meaning that he can now seek to continue his career in cycling as a sports director if a team wishes to sign him up.

    Way to go Aus cycling for keeping this on the down low. Never knew he'd been banned - was it public knowledge?

    EDIT: CN quotes him saying he only found out himself in a letter last week.

    Martin, Kittel, Degenkolb issue joint statement
    Riders say none of them has ever doped and never will; ask for public confidence and better laws

    http://www.faz.net/aktuell/sport/mehr-sport/radprofis-im-gespraech-wir-brauchen-ein-anti-doping-gesetz-12172587.html (DE)

    Quote
    Since you're riding in the peloton, do you ever have suspicions that a competitor has made ​​a strange leap in performance?

    Kittel: Of course. There's a really recent example of the Tour of Turkey: a Turk came second to last last year and this year he has won. You can put two and two together. I won the first stage and the leader's jersey, the Turk had the mountain jersey and he stood next to me at the start of the second stage, and I looked at him and thought, man, either there are damned big mosquitos in Turkey, or something on his arm is funny - there were certainly quite a few puncture marks. But this is perhaps a good sign that it's so obvious when a rider makes such a stark jump in power, perhaps it means that the whole field is moving at a relatively normal level. That would probably not noticed in earlier times.

    Kittel is emotive, Degenkolb very proper and forthright and Martin a little more circumspect. Nice interview.

    Haven't read the whole thing yet, but Kittel should think better before dissing another rider (even when it's probably legitimate).
    The mountain jersey was Grechyn, not Sayar.

    Read it now.
    Having read the part about Sayar again, I've realized Kittel talks about the start of stage 2 - where Sayar was in the mountain jersey. My bad.
    I feel Kittel's answers are the well-known soundbites. Races too hard, making a cut at 2007 etc... Sounds like he's just regurgitating what others told him to say.

    But it's good that they do a thing like this, and in a mainstream paper like the FAZ. The first reader comments (of course it's never a representative cross-section making these comments) don't make me very hopeful that the general stance in Germany will change soon, though.

    Definitely a good interview. I can reiterate what just some guy said: Watch it!

    He makes some good points, and if he's honest I think he's one of the "persons with a past" that could (should?) be involved in cycling in the future.

    OK, I've watched it at last. Good to here that they aired that Trent Lowe business, something with which I have never been very happy.

    I do wish he would have said something about why his decision to dope was wrong.

    about Pieter Vanspeybrouck's ongoing 3 month suspension, from today's Het Nieuwsblad (gt):

    Quote
    Tested negative, still suspended

    Pieter Vanspeybrouck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) is suspended for three months. Because of doping. Or because he was too honest. An audit out of competition proved negative, but Vanspeybrouck told himself that he had used the banned product Duovent, that the team doctor had prescribed. "I screwed myself."

    Renner. Doping. Disclaimer. You know now how it goes, but maybe just read the story of Peter Vanspeyborouck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) until the end. Because not everyone who is serving a suspension, is therefore a sinner. "I have been too honest" says Vanspeybrouck. "I just did what I always do: follow the rules," And then with a sigh: "I screwed myself. In late February Vanspeybrouck visit a physician control of the Flemish Community. Received "At six o'clock in the morning," he says. "The agreement is that you List on what medication you have used before. So that's why I said Duovent. I got that product from the team doctor on stage in Calpe. "This internship took place in January. "I was there when I asked the team doctor for the product Ventolin" says Vanspeybrouck. "I use that product my whole career." Ventolin is a 'puffer' that opens the airways and therefore is quite popular in the peloton. It used the product a 'TTN' (therapeutic use exemption) necessary, but now no longer. "At the time I have to undergo to prove that I really need the product testing," says Vanspeybrouck. "I take Ventolin certainly not just. 'Problem is that he gets on stage no Ventolin of the team doctor, but the conscious Duovent. Exact same product, says the doctor. "He assured me that there was no problem," said Vanspeybrouck. "And you believe a team doctor at his word." The rider is therefore completely innocent when the control doctor 'confesses' he used to have. Duovent "But this man told me once that I needed a certificate for it. I fell from the sky. I called the team and that the famous doctor blame. He did not know Duovent contained banned substances. "

    Prohibited substance called fenoterol, but what appears after the check: the analysis of the urine sample is negative. But get Vanspeybrouck half months later in a letter stating that he should appear. Before the disciplinary committee of the federation Because he himself 'known' so. "Should I be mad at myself?" Asks Vanspeybrouck. "I've said it yourself shows that I have acted. Really good faith At the next check I'm doing the same thing. "

    The conclusion is that today Vanspeybrouck three months suspended. A minimum penalty, because the disciplinary committee understands that there is no deception. "But I still like three months long. I lost my spring and I have myself not to blame. "The team doctor in question immediately resigned yesterday and did not respond. 'Unacceptable is too big a word, "says Vanspeybrouck. "But for me this is very heavy. I have been in a serious slump, but am now back in training. With extra motivation. You'll see from May 30, the day when I can cycle again. "

    http://velonews.competitor.com/2013/04/news/kreuziger-refuses-to-answer-questions-on-ferrari-and-ties-to-doping_283041

    So will not discuss now , but after Romandie. Seems there is a statement on the way.

    My guess I used him as a trainer only and did not dope.

    I was correct

    Roman Kreuziger admits working with banned Dr Ferrari
     


    "When I started working with him I was 20 years old. I was in my first year as a professional, and at the time, I believed he was one of the best coaches in the world. That was why I contacted him back then," Kreuziger said in an e-mail to Cycling Weekly. "At that time I didn't know he was banned."

    Asked if he ever doped, Kreuziger said, "No. Never."


    Edit beaten by Dim with the link but I am going to keep my post to show I predicted something right  :D
