Now that Danilo Di Luca’s B-sample has also tested positive for Cera. Team Sponsor LPR Brakes is suing his ass for damages.
Di Luca “will also be held responsible for all damage” to the reputation of both the sponsor and the team said the squad’s management company, BF Cycling Management, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport. The Italian newspaper also reported that BF Cycling Management has instructed its attorneys to commence legal proceedings.
Maybe this type of thing will help tip the scales of doping. Right now it’s obvious that the potential benefits outweigh the liabilities of getting caught. If Di Luca has to fork over a bunch of money for damaging the reputation of his employer maybe some guys will think twice.
