We had an SMS from Alex tonight to let us know that he will indeed be with Garmin for 2013!

Following is the interview we were about to publish prior to his good news…

Today was ‘D Day’ for Alex Rasmussen, will JV let him put pen to paper and welcome him back to the Garmin fold? Or will the man from Odense and his manager have to go back to the drawing board to get the talented Dane back in the peloton?

Whilst Leipheimer, Danielson, Zabriskie and Vande Velde will soon be back on the scene having served six months off season suspensions for being involved in the Armstrong blood doping, EPO and testosterone scandal, Rasmussen continues to suffer into his third interrupted season after his well-documented ‘whereabouts’ indiscretions.

The way the UCI has handled the case would be laughable, if it had not been so tragic for the versatile and likeable Dane.

Here’s how he explained his getting in to the mess to us, last summer.
