Now this is me in tinfoil modus, as I'm not sure of the current stance of the National unions. Perhaps something has recently changed what I'm not aware of:
My impression is that the National Unions don't really want to pursue this. If we look at the KNWB and BWB we see only extremely belatedly some research into the ton of rumours that have been around since Festina.
The fact that Rabo wasn't dismantled after it's management was involved in whereabouts fraud is shocking. The Belgians are belatedly researching Leinders, but they have been okay with Ibarguen at Lotto. For that matter, when Boonen all those years ago in a public outburst admitted almost everyone used Epo there was enough grounds to turn Quickstep inside out.
We know the Spanish Union doesn't cooperate or largely feels powerless.
The French have a lot of rethorics, but Dr. Menuet is still with a team.
Besides USADA I can only think of the Italians who are remotely anti doping.
Every other union is acting rather reluctantly if acting at all.
