Nobody noticed apparently something suspicious on the German Team Sunweb, when Georg Preidler in 2017 ran on the team, but now it's already karantæneramte an austrian accused of also the years that have bloddopet themselves.
It comes as a shock to the team's erstwhile captain, the dutchman Tom Dumoulin, which is the year with Preidler that year won the Giro d'italia. In a posting on Twitter regrets Dumoulin deep, that his once close friend and helps might have cast a shadow over the great performance.
I was shocked this morning when I read the news that my forms teammate Georg Preidler has been accused of doping starting in the Giro of 2017. My thoughts: pic.twitter.com/NCufwuxDR5— Tom Dumoulin (@tom_dumoulin) September 19, 2019
- I am shocked over it. I am more than proud of the victory, and I will always be. But now I know that I may have had a teammate, who did not run the clean, write Dumoulin.
- It is a bitter pill to swallow, writes Dumoulin and expresses the hope that the accusation of bloddoping in 2017 does not have root in reality.
- But, to be honest, so I would not be surprised (if it was true, red.). He was no longer the happy and Georg, whom I once knew. He emerged bitter, insecure and self-obsessed, writes Dumoulin.
- I think it was hard for him to find that he worked as hard as he could, and that it was not enough to make him the rider he wanted to be.

- It is well a question that bothers any athlete, including me, from time to time, but he turned to doping, while others did not. Am I angry? Yes!
Dumoulin says in its lookup of the close relationship, he from 2013 built to Georg Preidler of Team Sunweb. The austrian was one of the riders, Dumoulin was linked most strongly to.
the Tape between the two riders løsnedes at the end of their shared time on the team, says Dumoulin, who was angry when Preidler was harvested in dopingefterforskningen ‘Operation Aderlass’. Relieved found Dumoulin, he writes that the illicit relationship took place after the Preidlers stay on the Team Sunweb.
It is the accusation that he is also in the 2017 used bloddoping that have driven Dumoulin to the keys.
He made a mistake and he will pay the price. I hope he will get his life back on track, and that he will rediscover the happy, friendly person who is hiding in him, writes Dumoulin.
Dumoulin has this season broken his contract with the Team Sunweb for the next season to join the Dutch succeshold Jumbo-Visma.
