Lowe 'threatened to expose information' in Slipstream case

Trent Lowe and David Millar

Slipstream Sports, owner of the Garmin-Cervelo team, has issued a statement on the events that lead to dismissal of directeur sportif Matt White from the squad at the weekend.

The statement concerns former Garmin rider Trent Lowe, who had been referred by White to former US Postal doctor Luis Garcia Del Moral in Valencia, Spain, in 2009. This was a breach of the team's rules as all medical referrals should be made through the squad's medical staff. White was subsequently dismissed.
