After testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs on December 24th, 2007, Thomas Dekker requested a B test, which also came up positive.

In 2008, he was also not allowed to race in the Tour, and the Rabobank team cited “abnormal blood values” as the reason. Dekker has accepted the test results, and awaits his sanction.
