Just as a gut feeling it seems very unlikely to me that major teams based in the South are running a team doping programme out of Caen. If they had such a programme, there are surely more convenient places for them to be operating it.L'arriviste said:If it's anything like Oktos-Cofidis (the lovely cathedral town of St Quentin - a bit off the beaten track too) - and this is pure conjecture, of course - the action could centre on an amateur-feeder club (of which there are one or two main ones in that region, I think) that supplies up through the pros.
But the coverage so far suggests both amateur and professional cyclists. So perhaps its an element of the local amateur scene combined with a pro or two who lives in the region?
I suppose we'll find out in the near future.
