Team Garmin: Kiwi Guy cruises, CVV hangs on to 3rd


Responding to Thursday’s other Tour news – the departure of Riccardo Ricco and his Saunier-Duval team – Team Garmin director sportif Jonathan Vaughters says that "it’s always darkest before the dawn."

"Think of this," Vaughters writes on the Team Garmin blog, "it was the year 2000 before an EPO test came out. Whereas it was 1988 when EPO came to the market. Twelve years of everyone smiling and believing nothing was wrong. Now, with CERA, it’s not even been through phase 1 trials and the test is already out. You must understand this is so much better than before. This is what most of the riders want. They want the testing to be BETTER than the doping technology. It just makes things simple for them. No horrible dilemmas, no ‘rock and hard place’ choices. Just racing."

The racing continues Friday, with a 182km battle from Narbonne to Nimes, and Team Garmin will continue to lead the way toward a new dawn of cycling.
