Apparently too many “singular cases” for the Telekom…

But isn’t the Telekom or its brand T-Mobile pulling out of cycling sponsoring due to doping a bit late? Seems to me like they’re pulling the emergency brake only after the train had derailed long ago. (Maybe they have to concentrate too much on the iPhone, which they are selling exclusively here in Germany. ;) )

Well, so let’s get on with another new beginning, with a new sponsor here and there, with clean cyclists and still doping cyclists, with new cyclists, old cyclists, new coaches and trainers, old coaches and trainers, new doping methods, old doping methods…


Somehow, I doubt that there have been essential improvements recently and that there will be such improvements soon.

More also (in German) on Spiegel, Focus, N24 and many more.
