T-Mobile?s new-look super team take centre stage in the November edition of Cycle Sport. The German communications giant was close to pulling out of sponsoring a cycling team after squad star Jan Ullrich was embroiled in the Operacion Puerto affair prior to the Tour.

Rather than pulling the plug, however, T-Mobile decided to overhaul the squad, dispensing with the old management and a number of riders and then introducing radical new anti-doping measures. The magazine talks to the team to find out why and how they?ve done it.

Also in the issue: exclusive Thor Hushovd, Roger Hammond and Mark Cavendish interviews; World Championships photo special; Italy?s controversial doctors; UCI calendar in crisis and much more. See www.cyclesport.co.uk for more details.
