The stream of riders rushing to sign the UCI's new anti-doping charter continues to flow with the addition of Riccardo Riccò (Saunier Duval), and Rubén Plaza (Caisse d'Epargne) to the list. The pair are the latest individuals to sign the charter, in which riders pledge to pay a full year's salary and serve a two year suspension if found to have doped, while T-Mobile has become the latest of the 21 ProTour teams to have its entire roster sign the charter.
