Discovery Channel to L'Equipe: no comment

VeloNews | Discovery Channel won't talk with L'Equipe

VeloNews reports that Discovery Channel's director, Johan Bruyneel, is restricting comments to French sports daily L'Equipe, owned by the organization that runs the Tour de France.

Yesterday's Disco team wrap-up in L'Equipe?

“The American team doesn't wish to communicate information about its riders to L'Equipe.”

L'Equipe was the newspaper that last year linked blood samples from the 1999 Tour with results from a study done on EPO, and claimed that Lance Armstrong's samples tested positive.

That would be like consorting with the enemy. Oh, but I'm sure they can get an interview with members of that new French team: Whiner Bicyclette.
