I think they will. I don't know what the legal position is, but I would think the germans would be liable for hefty damages if they suddenly cancelled them, and the German Cycling federation could well find themselves blacklisted.

I think the Germans are being holier-than-thou shoots over this doping issue. Why not pick on the sports where everyone knows doping is rife but nothing is done to stop it, rather than the one sport which is not afraid to confront the issue.

I would imagine that if any country needs a successful cycling event, Germany is high on that list. Also, apart from Millar, there haven't been many doping scandals in the Worlds for a number of years.

I can't believe it's even an option.

So there are some cheats in the sport, so what?

They get caught and punished in the end. Absolutely no reason they should not go ahead. The Germans are being stupid......

I'd really like to believe that, but how do we know?

I think that if the Germans are being stricter they are doing the right thing. Remember that part of Germany once fielded the notoriously drug dependent East German athletes. Something that may explain their current attitude?

if you cancel events because of doping problems in sport, the Olympics would be the first thing to go.
