From UCI president Pat McQuaid...
This pretty much sums up the legitimacy of the lab that did the T/ET ratio test during the tour.
From Velonews article quoting UCI president Pat McQuaid:
"Also, we know that the French laboratory [where the testing was done] has a close connection with [French sports daily] L'Équipe, and we did not want this news to come through the press, because we are sure they would have leaked it.
Considering the lawsuits/drama/etc with Lance and L'Equipe, this seems to be a good way to a) sell papers, and b) continue to make excuses for why the french can't win their own damn race.
