German says he expects laboratory's counter-analysis to clear his name
Olaf Pollack expects to know this week whether counter-analysis of anti-doping samples has confirmed evidence of manipulation. The Dresden Institute for Doping analysis and Sport biochemistry has commenced analysis of samples taken on September 6 that had allegedly shown irregular blood values.
Pollack was suspended by the German Cycling Federation (BDR) in mid-September after the initial findings. The former Gerolsteiner and T-Mobile professional has denied any wrong-doing and told German media that he expects the counter-analysis to support his claim of innocence.
"I count upon hearing a result by the end of the week," said Pollack on Tuesday, according to German newspaper Bild.
Pollack could face a two-year suspension from competition if the result of the counter-analysis confirms evidence of doping practices.
