Just heard on five live that Rabobank sacked Rasmussen due to him telling them he was in mexico when apparently he was in italy.
If thats true, then its good news, and it shows at least one team is determined to back the authorities and stand by the 'no drugs' policy.
Not sure why they didn't sack him first off, even though he hadn't been caught with anything in his system
if his story was that he didn't get the test notice as he was in Mexico and, therefore, with bad postal systems and thousands of miles away, but was in Italy - substantially closer (dunno about the post though), then it's not good. as he's meant to keep the UCI, DCU and, most importantly, his team know where he is, then he's been telling porkies. it puts the team in a bad position and jeopardises the other riders... plus if the UCI and/or DCU find out where he was, then there will be a large smelly stuff/air circulation device interface.
i'm surprises the ASO didn't arrange for an accident with a motorbike today, that would have made it a lot easier.
