Discovery Channel released word that they have taken the high ground and had Ivan Basso agree to supply a DNA sample if authorities require it to convict or exonerate Ivan from a doping case. Great move forward most have said.
Or is it.
Not to question the tactics but right now, no judicial authority is requesting it. Operation Puerto is closed for the foreseeable future and the Italian authorities have dismissed their case against the rider. Therefore, the clamor to provide a DNA sample to prove if he is “Birillo” is gone.
Regardless of the intentions score one for Johan.
