T-Mobile internal testing - Finally a measure of accountability??
Interesting story from VeloNews... http://www.velonews.com/race/int/articles/10672.0.html
T-Mobile is looking to internally test its riders. This kind of accountability is very much needed. The teams need to be the front line of knowing their own are clean.
Hopefully this would in the future put the onus for positive tests not only on a rider, but on the team, as well. If teams are more active in keeping their riders and corporate sponsors images clean, then it could go a long way in restoring the peloton to credibility.
It's a risky move by T-Mobile, but ultimately could be bold enough to work.
(Yeah, yeah, I know it won't stop doping. This is more about finally having teams step up and accept some responsibility and not leaving it up to individual riders to battle alone against the UCI / WADA / Court of Sporting Arbitration / Lawyers.)
