T-Mobile riders agree with sponsor's measures

The riders of the T-Mobile team have welcomed the additional steps required by their sponsor, which do not extend to the women's team. The biggest change is giving up part of their salaries, which will be funneled towards the fight against doping. Team spokesperson Stefan Wagner told Cyclingnews that the riders were already debating during the Tour, right after the Patrik Sinkewitz case became known, to see what needs to be done.

Some thought it would be the end of the team. "I called Andreas Klier and told him while he was in a training camp and he thought that was it," Wagner elaborated.
