Dies Irae?

By Jeff Jones

The Verdi Requiem may have been a more fitting piece of music to go with the events of the past 36 hours of the Giro d'Italia. Although operatic, it was also written as a mass for the dead. What started at 9 pm on Wednesday night in San Remo surely killed the Giro this year.

The race will go on, that is certain. After calls from top men in the Italian government, the International Olympic Committee, sponsors, and the strong intervention of the UCI, the riders had little choice. To abandon now would appear to be an even worse defeat. However, with the annulation of the most critical stage of the final week, the Giro is finished.

The final three stages, one of which is mountainous, will reveal whether the riders have any interest in racing. But barring any accidents, Gilberto Simoni will ride into Milan with the Maglia Rosa. His win, even though it has seemed likely from his performances on stages 13-15, will be tarnished by the fact that the showdown didn't happen on the way to Santuario Sant Anna Di Vinadio yesterday. Perhaps stage 20 from Busto Arsizio to Arona will provide the last test. It is hard to imagine at this stage.

Consider the hundreds of thousands of fans who trekked up the mountain side over the past few days to see their heroes battle it out in true fashion; the businesses who brought in extra staff and supplies for the anticipated crowds; the volunteers who were helping with the race; the parties and festivities that were planned... The list goes on and it is both painful and incredible to think of the impact that cancelling the stage had.

According to reports, the NAS action in San Remo had been planned since stage 8 which finished in Reggio Emillia, when a much smaller and more discreet search was carried out. The drug squad were doing their jobs under orders from the magistracy in Florence, who had been granted the power to do this after the Italian anti-drug law was passed in November last year. The government that passed the law has recently been removed from office, and this may have been one of their last shows of 'strength'.

Can you imagine it happening at any other major sporting event? The 1998 Tour de France set an unfortunate precedent.

The current situation is that over 300 products (possibly including anabolic and corticosteroids, stimulants, caffeine, vials of blood, drug testing kits and pleny of other substances) were seized from the teams on Wednesday night, with everything being sealed in plastic containers and envelopes and sent to laboratories in Rome and Florence for examination. Some teams, although they were searched, had nothing seized from them.

Does the end justify the means? If several teams are found to be loaded with illegal drugs and prosecuted, will this be a positive step in cleaning up the sport, a Day of Judgment? Time will tell, but raids such as this have occurred several times in the past, with the greatest effect simply being bad publicity. In spite of that, cycling is still growing in popularity.

It is certain that the UCI is doing a lot more to clean up the sport and make it healthier. This combined with additional testing from national federations means that few cyclists will go through the season without being tested more than once. The UCI has been criticised for being slow in tackling the EPO problem, but compared with most other sports it is the world leader by a long way.
