Subject: Telekom hauntings

It is interesting to see the - perhaps groundbreaking - developments occuring in Germany these days.

First Bert Dietz. Then Christian Henn. Now Rolf Aldag is considering a "confession", and is perhaps trying to talk Erik Zabel into joining him.

Brian Holm has already made his own "confession" in his book a few years back (although he denied using EPO or anything directly illegal, he admitted to having used PEDs during his career), and talks approvingly of the ones confessing.

There is clearly a landslide building in Telekom-land. Who will be next? And what will the fallout be?

I am hoping that Riis will tell what he knows (or will admit to knowing) soon. He will almost certainly never find a better moment to "confess", IMO.

T-Mobile, on the other hand, seems in a deep crisis. The past of the team is under a deep shadow. The much touted T-Mobile anti-doping initiative is completely in ruins. And T-Mobile was in a period of re-evaluating its sponsorship situation even before this broke. If the ex-riders had been planning to destroy the team, they could hardly have picked a more damaging moment to make their confessions. I think there is good reason to fear that T-Mobile will close after this year, and that is sad, given the team's apparent commitment to a new sport.
