He could have gone to the ECHR. He would have won according to a professor of law (not sure which area it was, prob human rights) in a interview. His right to presumption of innocence was violated.

But i think that term has been expired.

Pity.
It would've been an outstanding discovery.

Alberto about the Giro-Tour double

and about the classics:

Quote:
That said, he does like the idea of winning his first spring Classic. It’s a question of metering out his energy, though, with the specific demands of the one day races meaning that he would have to aim to be at a peak. If he’s also trying to do the same for the Giro and the Tour, it’s difficult for the body to be able to raise itself each time.

“I think I could win a Classic if I completely prepared to get one, but you have to consider what you would be risking,” he said. “To do that, I’d need to have more training that for stage races; they [the Classics] don’t rely on recovery, which is my best quality. There’s also the issue of spring allergies.

“The only year that I was well trained I rode at a good level, but the effort is very large and are not entirely compatible with the Tour de France.”
