WADA praises UCI. Suggest more testing...at night.

Apparently, WADA and the UCI are trying to repair the marriage. WADA praised the UCI for it's comprehensive testing during the Tour in this article. WADA continues to say that the UCI should consider testing atheletes in the middle of the night to "seriously consider removing the informal knowledge and comfort all riders have in knowing they will not be tested [in the middle of the night.]"

Night testing. hmmm.

I wonder how the riders will feel about being woken after a grueling mountain stage...or before one. Should we care?

Is it reasonable that it comes with the territory of being a professional cyclist that you will be interrupted during sleep to be drug tested?

Are WADA and potentially the UCI going too far?

Bettini, what thinks you?
