Quick-Step team doctor Yvan Vanmol is suing the Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws and reporter Martin Michialssens for two million Euros over a series of articles linking him to doping within the team, according to Sportwereld. Last week, team manager Patrick Lefevere announced he was suing the newspaper and reporter for more than 20 million Euros.

The articles, which appeared in January , claimed that Vanmol administered doping products to the riders. "I have nothing to hide," said Vanmol. "I am not afraid of the truth."
