Everything looks coordinated and shared. Of course should these institutions fail to act in a meaningful way, I have little doubt Rasmussen will deliver the details in a book later. Act now or ticking bomb.

No one but a chicken that is.
Good to see Armstrong disproved so quickly

I dunno. The guy turns 39 in June and he has zero chance of racing WT. TRC can't offer him much.

TRC offers the ability to stay in the sport in some capacity.

Rasmussen is looking at a 2 year ban then a return as a DS. Not to be sniffed at.

I think it's good that Rasmussen told the truth about his doping, and did not try to hide parts of it. However, let's remember that Rabobank is coming down right now, so the timing of his admission is no coincidence. It reminds me of the Team Telekom confessions - welcome, but not exactly "voluntarily".

With every new confession, it becomes clear that there has to be truth and reconciliation, and it has to offer something for current riders. It's simply unsustainable that someone like Rasmussen admits to doping throughout his entire career, but the likes of Schleck, Contador, Wiggins, Evans, Vino et al. are somehow being celebrated as clean athletes. I hope that cycling can set an example for other sports.

Contador and Vino are convicted dopers. Their results will forever be questionable.

The others however.....

You sure?

Continental teams competing in PT races are still eligible for testing - they just don't necessarily get added to the OOC test pool.

Checking 2012's registered testing pool, Michael Rasmussen's name appears. So unless there are 2 Michael Rasmussens from Denmark, he is part of the ABP. I can't find the 2011, 2010 or earlier RTP, but if he's there in 2012, I am making an educated guess he was there in 2010 as well. If you're on the RTP, you're also eligible for OOC testing.

Makes me roll my eyes when people mobius themselves to attribute "slamming" of anyone based on posts discussing everything but the allegedly slammed person.

Continental teams cannot compete in ProTour races.
