Saxo support him personally, if they were worried about doping they would have bolted away from Contador. Tinkov couldn't give a ****.

I suppose someone will blame the media or the antidoping crusaders or the Clinic 12 or whatever, so I'll take this chance to say those teams had it coming and have been their own undoing.

Even if Saxo quits, Tinkov will stay.

Rabo, and Shack definitely. Vacans had their problems with the signings of Ricco and Mosquera and this year they signed Bole, but could consider themselves unfortunate.

I don't see the reason for the opposite. Danish federation had much evidence to touch Riis before Rassmussen's admission (OP, Tyler's book etc. etc), but it didn't happen because no federation will destroy its national cycling completely. So I'm pessimistic in this regard.

Riis has been quite teflon so far, but how long can it last? It will not take much digging to expose him.

If hopefully Riis is forced out of cycling this time, Pretty sure Tinkov will carry on with his own team.

Hmmm, this is the same country that only has murder recorded as a murder when there is an almost certain chance of arrest & conviction!

You're logic is mortally flawed. It doesn't matter what the nationality, dopers know no borders. A Japanese rider is no less likely to dope than a Briton, American, Spaniard, Norwegian or Italian.

also I'm sure the current luis leon is clean, he's totally different rider now. but if they are going to take him based on 2006, then when are they ever going to restest f'n basso in giro 2005/2006? the biggest cycling joke in recent history

because he already has and saxo is his personal sponsor. their boss is a close friend of riis. similar to how lampre's boss is a huge cycling fan and he will never quit cycling, despite everyone (and probably you too) in recent years claiming lampre would quit
