So he is clean like Lance is clean? Never a positive test that counts as a positive test?xcracer said:He doped with dynepo (probably from Humanplasma, Wienna) in 2007, but it was tested with non authorised test, so, oficially, he is "clean" (besides hiding from the UCI controlls). As they tested Dekker's samples and found it positvie for Dynepo, they could test any other Rasmussen samples from Tour 2007 and they will be positive as well.
issoisso said:Michael Rasmussen contacted Ivano Fanini of Amore & Vita to ask for a spot on the team, just like the rest of the squad, which is made up of former dopers who came clean.
Fanini's response, being just about the most staunch fighter of doping around, is that chicken has a spot on the team as long as he does the same as everyone else on the squad: reveals all he knows about his past and organized doping and takes his suspension if one is forthcoming.
So we can have chicken riding for Fanini soon. Whoever would've guessed
He filed all the whereabouts papers for doping controls saying he'd be in Mexico with his mexican wife.Green Hornet said:If I remember correctly, Rasmussen was booted out because he was not where he said he was and missed doping controls. He was probably off somewhere boning some bimbo. For this he served two years.
His team probable said; Ras - if you can get lucky go for it.
I say; Welcome back & Good Luck -
That said he will likely have a hard time finding a good team
