Today's cyclingnews.com has an article concerning an anonymous ex-Telekom rider who is giving evidence on doping.  

What's interesting to see who was on Telekom/T-Mobile in 2003 and 2004.

T-Mobile rider claims widespread EPO use

The rider, whose name was not released, rode for the team in those two years, but it was not clear as to whether those were the only two years, or whether he is still active. He allegedly made a comprehensive statement about doping practices at the team during those years.

A former Team Telekom/T-Mobile rider claimed that team doctors from the Freiburg University Clinic distributed EPO (Erythropoietin) to riders during 2003 and 2004, public prosecutors in Freiburg, Germany said Monday night on German TV.

What's interesting is to see who was in the squad in 2003/04.

The info is taken from cyclingwebsite.net; I've just included riders who were in the team for both 2003 and 2004.

Mario Aerts, Rolf Aldag, Santiago Botero, Cadel Evans, Giuseppe Guerini, Torsten Hiekmann, Matthias Kessler, Andreas Klier, Andreas Kloden, Daniele Nardello, Paolo Savoldelli, Jan Schaffrath, Stephan Schreck, Alexanre Vinokourov, Steffen Wesemann, Sergei Yakolev, Erik Zabel.

Some big names left after the 2003 season: Danilo Hondo, Bobby Julich, Stefan Schumacher

Interesting signings for 2004: Jan Ullrich, Heinrich Haussler

Quite a few of these have been busted for doping or admitted as such.  Aldag, Botero, Kessler, Vino, Zabel, Hondo, Schumacher to name a few.  

Rampant speculation begins now as to who is coming clean...
