Rudy Pevenage, who was given his marching orders by T-Mobile after his involvement in Operacion Puerto, says that he still hasn't heard anything official about the case. "I'm just sitting at home," he said in an interview with Gazet van Antwerpen. "I haven't got much news. From Spain, I have heard nothing yet. No dossier, no information, nothing.
"Everything I know, I've largely got from the media. My lawyer has advised me to comment as little as possible about the affair. I want to hold myself to that."
Pevenage said that he didn't know whether he would be back in the peloton, and commented that "there were strange things that happened before the start of the Tour. For my, Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso were kept away for unclear reasons. There was a list with riders. A bit later there were names taken off that list."
