I've also always enjoyed watching Hamilton. Yesterday in the BERNER ZEITUNG I read that UCI doctor Mario Zorzozoli explained that during the last year there were a number of abnormal blood tests from the PHONAK team. In light of that, a closer scrutiny at the team's practices was undertaken. I have also read somewhere, but have not been able to find the article, that during Hamilton's period with the POST team, he often asked the doctor of the team for medication to help boost his performance. This is not to say that those medications were illegal, but that he was willing to try out new things. I believe it was the POST team doctor who made those allegations. The article is probably floating around the internet somewhere. Probably if one did an intelligent GOOGLE, one could find the article.

I've met a few of the former pros who were caught doping and they are all very pleasant people.
