UCI says Dekker's blood values ok

Thomas Dekker has released to Cyclingnews the letter he received from the UCI confirming his right to ride.

The letter, which was sent by e-mail and signed by UCI doctor Dr. Mario Zorzoli, said, "This is to confirm that all tests results of 2008 that are known to UCI show that the blood values of Thomas Dekker ... did not exceed any limits which would have required the imposition of a declaration of incapability under UCI's current regulations."

This week a Dutch newspaper published allegations that Dekker was on the verge of leaving Team Rabobank and that he had shown "irregular blood values". The Dutch youngster denied the charge.
