Furthermore, Aldag himself is an admitted doper who is now quite employed in cycling. Why should he have a job in cycling and not Sinkewitz?B_Ugli said:Rolf Aldags comments are mystifying.
Perhaps the media should ask why for a long time there was no team willing to sign Sinkewitz after his doping violation
I cant work out whether he is saying:
(a) That Sinkevitz didnt get a ride for while cos he broke the rules of Omerta or
(b) It was well known within the peleton that he was well into his prep and was likely to get caught again should he return.
If Omerta still is a problem then I dont know why people like Aldag dont come out and say it rather than giving cryptic soundbites to the assembled Journos.
That whole paragraph with Aldag made me frown. Given his past, it makes him sound like a fool. To paraphrase: "It was okay when I did it, and I don't think it's wrong for a team to hire me even though (or especially because) I just quietly admitted to having done it myself a decade after the fact but didn't try to shed any light on the culture of doping in cycling.
"But for him to do it. (And talk about it, no less!) Well. That's just wrong, and it's no surprise that no one wanted to hire him. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a stable of young cyclists to influence and 'train.'"
Hypocrites, all of them.
