hrotha said:I imagine the difference is that they are now at Slipstream, a team with a clear mission statement, and if they fail to uphold it it's not the same as doping at Discovery, Liberty or Rabobank, where doping was facilitated or encouraged. I wouldn't think it's the same, and I'd expect a Garmin rider who tested positive would never come back with JV.
they won't fail. JV was part of the UCI anti-doping commission.
and what's so clear about the mission statement? the mission statement promises transparency , perfecting the process , and more marginal gain BS. Ah, and it's not about winning, but of course "we want to win as many races as possible".
