Davitmon-Lotto wants Alti-Trainer back

Davitmon-Lotto's team doctor Daniel De Neve has started a legal process to reclaim his Alti-Trainer, that was seized by Italian police during the Giro for its alleged blood boosting properties. Under Italian law, any artificial method to increase blood values for sport competition is prohibited, although the manufacturers of the Alti-Trainer make no claims that it changes an athlete's blood values.

De Neve hopes to be able to have the device back in his possession by the Tour de France, as it is legal to use it in France.
