The story's been picked up in today's Guardian.

Nice, doper-friendly organisation, the UCI.

Guardian reports Hein continues to defend this policy here . UCI clearly in need of some crisis management advice. Wrong Hein, the savvy answer is "We were trying to do the right thing but in retrospect it didn't work and we were wrong" not "We did nothing wrong and I am not responsible for this disaster that happened when I was in charge, pass the bottle!"

Reported in other English speaking press too http://www.smh.com.au/sport/cycling/...123-2d7sf.html

Can you imagine one of their anti-doping meetings?

They'd be all looking at each with a smirk each time they made anti-doping statements.

"Miguel what are your thoughts on additional bio testing."

"We'll, ummm, you, know, I'm very much in favor of additional testing, but we should consider the athletes rights.... errrr...."

President in norwegian cycling federation about Verbruggen:

"Has nothing to do in sport.."

".. Verbruggen now says, should be more than enough reason to throw him out of the IOC, where he is an honorary member, said Tiedemann Hansen."
