more likely due to another doping sanction of 2 years

More likely indeed. :) There's no other news about this anywhere so it's hard to qualify what happened.

Same substance (methylphenidate) as in 2017 so is it an entirely new positive (with 2-year sanction instead of eight months last time) or somehow related to the last one?

His ban started 11 May this year and he was still racing then at the Rhône-Alpes Isère Tour for Tarteletto-Isorex. Top 10 overall there, you can hardly say it was a nothing result that confirmed his career had dead-ended.

Ritalin hasn't been common in the peloton since the 70s and of all the drugs to get popped for, this is among the more obscure.
