garmin to Zabriskie, "tell the truth and we’ll stand by you"

This is a interesting piece of news:

“We cannot change what happened in the past but we believe it is time for transparency,” Slipstream Sports, the parent company of Garmin-Transitions, said in a statement.

“We expect that anyone in our organisation who is contacted by any cycling, anti-doping, or government authority will be open and honest with that authority.

If Zabriske and White were involved with doping this offers them a free pass to say, “yes, I did it.” In the current enviornment Many former dopers might be afraid to speak out and potentially lose a contract. Garmin standing up and saying, “no big deal, as long as you tell the truth,” might lead to more riders stepping up and saying what everyone suspects; pro-cycling was dirty, it’s getting cleaner and we need to do better.
