Tenerife back in the news...

+

Remember how Froome, Nibali, and Contador are all training at the same hotel? Well, apparently there has been some chatter, between teams if not between the bigs themselves, and Froome has spotted something: you don't get tested if you train in Tenerife. He claims he's only been tested once in all the time he's spent there, and that he hasn't been tested at all in his Tour prep there. What's more, he says that neither Nibali nor Contador has been tested either. He seems quite pissed off about this. So, you're a drug tester. The three top contenders for the largest annual sporting event in the world are all training in exactly the same place at the same time, in the immediate run-up to the competition. What's more, they're training in a place that has (rightly or wrongly) gained a bad reputation as a hideaway for dopers, because apparently testers never go there. Do you a) send a tester on a pleasant spring vacation to Tenerife, making it harder to accuse the winner (whichever of the three he ends up being) and helping to quash rumours that the Tenerife training camps are for more than just altitude, or b) sit at home in the rain and assume that top cyclists couldn't possibly be doping if they're not in continental europe? The UCI now say they're 'looking into' the issue, but pass the buck to the 'Cycling Anti Doping Foundation', which is apparently the body in charge of this stuff and not the UCI honestly. (the CADF, iiuic, is a quango of the UCI that a recent audit found needed 'urgent' improvement, including to stop the UCI from interfering in its operation)
