the article is a bit confusing, it seems like there are two basically independent incidents. As far as I can see:

1st one is, that he raced with a (for whatever reason) not (yet) validated license, and got penalized for that.

2nd is, that he lied to an organizer, who apparently doesn't want ex-dopers at his events.

    Apparently no doping control at Étoile de Bessèges, according to Magnus Cort Nielsen.

    not good, but with so many races at the same time, I guess it's not too unusual, especially on 2.1 level.

    No idea how it really works though. In the Romanian races I've been to, for example, some years there are controls, and in others there are not. I guess the UCI/CAFD decides to send a DCO or not, and if they don't, the National Federation is free to decide if they want to do some testing?!

    A bit disappointed how the Astana stories went cold so quickly. Movement from CADF/UCI had been expected for a year or so but it didn't get far enough. Some people apparently talked but it was already too late because the structures had evolved since then. There are a lot of proxies in doping these days and it's easy enough to switch them around when things get suss. So it looks like it's going to be a big baby blue year of rubbing our noses in it.

    So this is encouraging.  :S

    Spanish police take down doping wholesaler and seize 1.6 million drug doses

    The investigation began after 100 boxes of growth hormone were sent to the wrong address last July.
     :lol

    Quote
    In total, 1.65 million drug doses were found, totalling 40,000 boxes of 140 different oral and injectable substances. This included 1.3 million units of anabolic or other injectable products and 31,000 doses of growth hormone.

    Those involved in the operation used at least seven web pages to offer EPO and other performance-enhancing drugs to customers for at least the last 10 years, with authorities saying they expect a large number of national and international athletes to be implicated.

    Good thing the '90s are behind us! :cool  :shh

    Kanstantin sivtsov (or how he likes to spell his name I am not sure) gets 4 years for epo. No practical consequences since he has retired from racing.

    However, what kind of publication is cycling weekly? They report it like this:
    https://twitter.com/cyclingweekly/status/1275519198329004032

    That looks like a poor attempt at trying to smear Team Sky. The convicted rider had 1 season for #dimensiondata and two for #bahrain after leaving Sky, and his positive test related to a race while he was riding for #bahrain.

    Cycling Weekly also could have targeted the Bielorussian ministry of sports, which have close links to the current last  dictator in Europe. They´re all kind of dodgdy, but it doesn´t generator clicks in the same way.

    It's a British publication, no? They may have been using the Sky reference just to make the story relevant to their reader base. Otherwise, the response may have been, "Who?"

    Just a thought.

    Bahrain-McLaren and Dimension Data also have strong ties to the UK, so while I partly agree with you - Cycling Weekly seem to go all in on the largest clickckbait they could find, including the photo.

    They are often nicknamed "Cycling Weakly". I'll let you draw the conclusions. ;)

    I also followed the link to the Cycling Weakly story.  They are poor. 

    Not because of the link - being weak, but becasue they can't be bothered to work out how deep it is.  Kanstantin was at Barloworld in 2007 with Thomas and Swift.   After that he went to HTC and stayed there with Cavendish, moving across to Sky with Cavendish. 

    Then of course, when Cavendish left for Dimension Data and then Bahrain, He followed albeit running out his contract at Sky so he was there four years.

    Looking at that 2007 Barloworld rosta and trying to imagine anyone there riding clean would take a awful lot of faith. 

    May your god look after you.
