Reaction Thomas Dekker on today's news
AMSTERDAM - Thomas Dekker was just ready for today's training when the news in Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reached him. In his reaction he is clear; 'For now I can confirm there is no agreement with Garmin-Cervélo or their development team. I am doing tests that correlate my power and oxygen carrying capacity with the blood levels. Hopefully, these will show my body can compete clean'.
'I have submitted a letter to WADA that I will cooperate fully with any questions they have re my past. I hope I am given another chance, but I understand that it isn't as simple as just asking to be forgiven and then jumping back into the top level. I will earn it. Slowly and patiently. And I will show that I can be a positive force in cycling. To be in contact with Vaughters is an honor on its own, making a comeback at his team is a dream'.
