Do they actually believe the Tour is clean?
http://www.spiegel.de/kultur/tv/ard-zeigt-wieder-tour-de-france-a-1011133.htmlThe contract (...) has an escape clause which enables ARD to cancel the contract in case of new doping incidents
Probably not, but with ARD broadcasting athletics, cross-country skiing and biathlon, not wanting to give those rights up due to popularity of the sports in Germany and now not being able to pretend those sports are that much better than cycling, they probably figure, as long as cycling doesn't slap itself in the face too much more, they can't really justify the double standard anymore and with the likelihood of German success to help boost ratings, they can stand to risk it.RiccoDinko said:Do they actually believe the Tour is clean?
