T-Mobile boss knocks University Clinic

T-Mobile Team Manager Bob Stapleton has harshly criticized the University Clinic in Freiburg, which withdrew its doctors from working with the team following disclosures that former team doctors Andreas Schmid and Lothar Heinrich had been involved in doping with the team in the 1990s. Stapleton called the Clinic's actions "irresponsible" and said that he would take them to court.

"I find that to be a total overreaction," he told the sid press agency. "Our attorneys are already on the case." Three weeks ago the Clinic broke its ties with the team, leaving the team without medical help. "The doctors had a contractual and ethical duty to our riders and left them having without any warning."
