Disco Stares Down IPCT

Their fellow Pro Tour teams reversed their decision to boot Discovery Channel from its ranks, now admitting that due process is a viable concept and that Basso should only be subjected to the arguably reasonable search requirement of a DNA test. Another unspoken angle is presumably the inability of the Pro Tour DSs to toss out a member in good standing with lots of contractual entanglements, just because they don't like their odor. Riders can be excluded because contracts (I suspect) are voidable for extreme reasons like cheating, but it's hard to imagine taking a team down this way.
