Team T-VB aka the kid who broke the Omertà
« on: March 31, 2015, 10:05 »
I just started to read about it, here is something I found on Twitter/Ciclismoweb:

young Kiwi Toby Atkins was supposed to ride for the Italian U23 team Team T-VB but found out that things weren't going the way he expected them to and informed the UCI about it

The investigation came to light these days would match from a distance and, more precisely, from New Zealand. And 'the month of January 2015 when the young Josh Atkins does return home with his head down. Party a few days before from home, to Sicily, to address the first collegiate preparation with his new team, Team T-VB, he would have discovered that things were much different than they would be if the wait. Once home he would tell pads, drip and performance-enhancing drugs. The prosecutor who had brought him to Italy would not think twice and would have denounced the Team T-VB to the Prosecutor of the Italian Republic.

From there he would leave the job of the investigators who with stalking, wiretapping and investigations would be able to reconstruct the truth about the team: on one side ads on charity and the new way of communication in cycling, the other the reality of a team in the which feels strong the smell of an old sport that is hard to break away from the shadow of doping.

An investigation, one carried out by Nas that culminated with the raid on Thursday March 26: interested all domiciles of athletes and executives as well as the headquarters of the team.

[...]

Substances found at the home of the athletes and managers reserve is still up. The positions would be very different, both among boys and among the leaders. Some would have been challenged only the possession of some pads for others the location could be much heavier much to assume a real trade in doping substances and stupefacienti.

  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.
