It was the right move to strip him of his tour titles and not to nominate a successor. After all, Ullrich, Klöden, Vinikurov have all been convicted.
I don’t believe every rider, who has participated in the tour has doped, there are riders out there, who have retired from pro. cycling because they refused to take performance enhancing drugs.
maybe some countries are stricter than others
That is the case. In Germany the athletes must inform the national anti- doping agency at all times, where they are located, in order for the agency to test them at any time.
If the fail do to so, they are penalised.
If I am not mistaken Rio Ferdinand was suspended for a couple of matches a couple of years ago, due to missing a drug test.
