Clerc was also asked about Rasmussen's participation, given his warnings from the UCI for repeatedly failing to record his whereabouts for anti-doping purposes. Clerc said Rasmussen should not have been allowed to race in the Tour, saying the Dane "did not serve as a good example."
"In a period of crisis such as we are living in at the moment, a champion must be a good example," said Clerc. "His attitude, his lack of respect shown to the administrative rules, which is unacceptable, should be made known to us and we would have refused his participation, because he is not a good role model for the others in the peloton."
