seems like it's not too spectacular in the end. In the depth of the NADA website, someone found an old sentence from 2010, which seems to be pretty much fitting.

There's no full name given in there, but "Artur G." is not too unlikely to be a former #milram pro

Thanks for the update! I can't publish this because there are no public sources clearly stating his name (local laws applicable) but I have recorded it for reference.

    And there really should be a next episode with stuff like this going on right under the testers' noses:

    the things, what happens if they didn't find anything this week? Will Spain then line him up for the World Championships? If he survived all the targeted testing this week, there's no reason why he shouldn't go for the win in Innsbruck

    Free Alarcón! :D

    Assuming he holds a Spanish licence, then he must be on the AEPSAD passport programme, so he has to fly under the longitudinal radar and beat the OOC and IC tests. Impressive stuff, although we know now that AEPSAD is starting to act on suspicious profiles.

    Meanwhile Alarcón signs one-year deals and squeezes what he can from the modest *pt scene. At 32, he could surely deliver a couple of seasons' worth of good results elsewhere but either the 'phone isn't ringing or he's turning them all down. So if he didn't make a move after last year's Volta, my guess is he's not going to do it now.

    yeah, it's pretty telling that no one is taking the risk, although he's probably a top 3 climber in the world. There are not many others around who can reach those numbers at least

     Meanwhile, back to the twilight zone that is Portugal and the Volta.

     The winner of the young rider competition and 16th place finisher overall, Xuban Errazkin fails an earlier test for terbutaline .

    Another Spaniard operating in Portugal. Errazkin is a massive talent and the media angle is that he got dropped from the Spanish Avenir squad because of this, a suggestion denied by the national team manager.

    What is notable about this, I think, is that it has one small similarity to the Froome case. Not because it's an asthma drug but rather because, like Froome, this was an AAF that somehow got leaked.

    Anyway, assuming Errazkin cannot raise a phalanx of lawyers, he can probably expect at best a Yates-style short suspension.
