Das T-Mobile-Nachfolgeteam High-Road unter Bob Stapleton will einen strikten Antidopingkurs einhalten. Dafür schloss es sich 2007 dem Programm der Agency for Cycling Ethics an, dem bereits das Slipstream Sports-Team von Jonathan Vaughters folgt.
“Last year we made a strong commitment to fight against doping,” said Bob Stapleton of High Road Sports. “It is the most comprehensive program out there. It is what the team needs and what the sport needs.”
Through this program, each of the team’s riders will give a minimum of 26 random blood AND urine samples per year. This is dramatically more testing than any other program conducts and will allow ACE to build profiles of each individual rider so that they will be able to detect small changes in the body chemistry that may be caused by blood transfusions or banned substances. The profiles will use blood and urine to build hematological parameters and a urinary steroidal profile. ACE will send test results to the UCI, to WADA and to the team."
