T-Mobile car searched by customs

The T-Mobile Team is being watched more closely during the Tour de France, following the Operacion Puerto affair news. During Wednesday's fourth stage, a team car being driven by team physiotherapist Aldis Cirlus was stopped on the border between Belgium and France and searched by customs officials. The luggage aboard, the interior of the seats and the entire engine area and trunk area were all thoroughly searched. "The customs inspection lasted about ten minutes and nothing was found," said team spokesman Christian Frommert.
