Yesterday, Gerard Vroomen used his blog to raise some questions about the BioPassport (here, and with follow up here). Specifically, Vroomen is worried that *he* hasn't heard of any testing being conducted on any riders this year. This is, as he admits, anecdotal, but he is worried. To add to his worries, he outlines a concern that court costs might be swallowing the testing budget.
This was mentioned in the Utah thread yesterday, but that wasn't the right place for a discussion. Given the appearance of a long article by Daniel Benson in Cyclingnews covering Vroomen's claims, Michael Ashenden's support of them, and a detailed UCI response, it seems that this now has legs. Since no fanpost has appeared to provide a space for the discussion, I figured I'd put one up.
So have at it. Links to the original pieces are above.
