Thomas Dekker, winner of yesterday's Tour de Suisse stage, is a client of the Italian doctor Luigi Cecchini. Now the UCI is putting pressure on the young Dutchman and his Rabobank team to sever the relationship, because of the doctor's past association with doping.

Dekker is considering what action to take. "A lot has been said about this controversial doctor," he told the NOS Sportjournal. "Perhaps I will have to face the consequences." He said that he has learned a lot from Cecchini, and added that he has often been tested by his team, with no unusual results.
