Another disaster for Dutch cycling: the notes of a former PDM soigneur reveal that 8 out of 9 riders who participated in the TdF of 1988 used cortisone, testosterone and blood transfusions. Steven Rooks, Gert-jan Theunisse, Adrie van der Poel, Andy Bishop, Marc van Orsouw, Rudy Dhaenens, Jörg Müller and Peter Stevenhaagen used banned substances. The only one who didn't participate was Gerrie Knetemann, but "de Kneet" abandoned the TdF during the 6th stage after he broke his clavicle.

Meanwhile, Thomas Dekker has announced that he will make a full confession about his doping past. ''As member of Team Garmin-Sharp and their policy and values, as Dutch rider and member of the Dutch federation, as ex-doper who served a 2 years suspension and as supporter of clean cycling: I announce that I will testify and fully cooperate with the Dutch Anti-Doping Authority to help further clean the world of cycling. Therefore I choose to give the full extent of my knowledge, names, dates and details."
