Not true. Prior to being pulled out McQuaid was defending that Rasmussen should stay in the race. In fact he was sued by a German UCI delegate over the matter. Nice try. It was not until after Rassmussen's TEAM pulled him from the race aft ASO pressure that McQuaid made the linked comments. Sorry to make you look stupid.Altitude said:Yes, really.
^^^At about the 1:20 mark Rasmussen is asked to respond to McQuaid's statements.
"The team decided to pull him out - that's their prerogative. I can only applaud that. It's a zero-tolerance policy and it's a lesson for the future."
