Expertengremium zur Auswertung des Biologischen Passes der UCI
Am 2. 5. 2008 gab die UCI die Namen der Experten bekannt, welche die Blut- und Steroidprofile der Fahrer auswerten wird:
„Die Mediziner arbeiten in Dreier-Teams und bearbeiten jeweils die Kontrollen einer Woche. „Nur wenn sich alle drei einig sind, geht eine Empfehlung an die UCI und die Wada“, erklärt Schumacher. Radsportverband und die Welt-Anti-Doping-Agentur (Wada) werden gleichzeitig informiert: „Damit wird größtmögliche Transparenz gewährleistet. Die UCI hat überhaupt nicht die Chance etwas zu verschleiern.“
