    Ruffoni, positive for growth hormone - claiming maybe prostrate infection.

    I am here to vouch that prostrate issues can be real, and they can cause some out of whack test results. Have we heard of prostrate issues being used as an excuse  before? Never heard of the guy otherwise, but I think I might keep an eye out for how this one turns out.

    I hope you folks notice this post. This is important, I think. The article is REAL hard to get started in and to get through, but eventually, once you start to see the main points, it becomes quite valuable. At least, IMHO:

    via @mister_boo: the German Nada 2016 report lists a positive training control for Tamoxifen in March 2016. Some rumors on Facebook say that it is a German pro.

    His lack of any races for #bora Bora - Argon 18 post April 3rd 2016, could indicate that the rider in question is Ralf Matzka.

    Originally a substance to treat breast cancer, often used as a masking agent for anabolic steroids.

    Wildly off topic, but the anti doping agency called "NADA" found "something" ?  :D

    Some teams sack their dopers in reality, others only in their press release.
    Bardiani's duo disappeared from their UCI list the day after the provisional suspension of the UCI.
    Synergy Baku's Averin, already sanctioned, is still listed.
    Every point counts.

    Could be the UCI being slow to process the paperwork, too. Or the #baku team (which is effectively the *az federation) being slow to file the paperwork.

    http://www.uci.ch/pressreleases/uci-statement-giampaolo-caruso-182850/

    Giampaolo Caruso, tested positive for EPO in a re-test of a sample from 2012, has been suspended for 2 years.
    The statement doesn't say whether this is retroactive (taking away results) or not.
    It doesn't really matter anyway since he retired after the positive was revealed ... in August 2015. So he would technically be eligible for a comeback in two months!

    Here's another hormone we will need a test for soon: injections of FGF19 increases muscle strength in mice and experiments on humans are on their way.

    In preliminary testing, human muscle cells were visibly enlarged when treated with FGF19. This is of course developed for treating people with illnesses - or rather it is not developed but discovered (as it is naturally occuring in the body) and then (I guess) synthesized for medical use. That's of course positive. Luckiliy for competitive sports it is so far, only experimental quantitites available, but I swear, this sounds like we'll need a test, the story goes very much like EPO in the 90's.  (Edit: Although this one works more like anabolic steroids).

    For the medically inclined, the results are peer reviewed and published in Nature Medicine. One of the authors works at a hospital a few kms up the road here, and this  was reported in local press (BT) today. (for Norwegian-readers and maybe for google-translators.

    If I understand the article correctly, molidustat was put on the doping list 1 January 2017, it is a substance that prompts the body to produce EPO naturally.

    ex #bora16 Ralf Matzka tested positive for tamoxifen in March 2016:
    http://www.faz.net/aktuell/sport/tour-de-france/ehemaliger-bora-profi-matzka-ist-positiv-getestet-worden-15101971.html

    He explains it by contaminated water, and a contamination doesn't sound unlikely to me. But short of providing the contaminated product (like Toft did just weeks ago), he shouldn't get around a suspension - and it doesn't matter that he retired at the end of last season.

    What looks really bad is that team & (ex-)rider haven't said a word about this until just today. That's not being proactive and staying ahead of the story, that's a cover-up.
    People should have learned by now that cover-ups just don't work.

    the positive result is confirmed now, after 15 months. Allegedly it came down to contaminated water though. The judicial inquiry (as it would have been a breach of the German anti doping law) was closed last September already for a lack of proof. Whether the UCI will still ban him or not is not known yet
