Default Puerto & Valverde

I hesitate to post this, but... Without wanting to start a did he/didn't he debate, I've got a few questions related to the Puerto case that I'm hoping you guys can help me with.

There's been a lot written about how it appears damning that Valverde is the only cyclist in the peloton with a surname starting with valv, and equally, that his dogs name was piti. It's equally been pointed out that cycling was not the only sport involved in Puerto.

My question is, are there any other spanish athletes in sports other than cycling whose name includes the letters valv? And how common is piti as a dog's name in Spain?

I'm not looking for evidence to clear or condemn Valverde, I've just been curious about this for a while, due to my woeful lack of knowledge re Spanish names and culture.

From what i've heard there are a lot of Spanish names named in this affair: tennisplayer Rafa Nadal, f1-driver Fernando Alonso, lots of players from Real Madrid and Barcelona, and so on. Nothing was ever proved but this is named as the most important reason the case was put to rest, to much damage for the Spanish sports world.

The wife of Fuentes has mentioned he treated allmost all the Spanish altletes during the '92 Olympics. Fuentes was teamdoctor of Belda's Kelme team when Valverde was at that team btw.

Yes, some people in Spain call their dog Piti, it is not just Alejandro Valverde.


But the Italian authorities believe they have a DNA match and evidence of money transfers. So the code name only gave them something to start on.

Was miserable , but we have to pass the page and not dig the cyclist, we are the fans and we are killing this sport. Is not our competence to judge this, the same that la, there are a lot of rumors but there are not definty proves

Fuentes is from wHere i borned in canary island,gran canaria, in 99 i went to a conference in the univerity, " the tittle conference was: T"The doping is ten years above the antidoping" that conference was very impresive and make me thought a lot. " i not defense him, and any one who cheat,they are the cancer. But we cant always been rising dudes to any spanish that is good in his sport. There are a lot of mistery about o.p, also there are many documents that nobody have seen again because they disapers. I think is more than few cyclist name, but THAT YOU SAY about Rafa and Fernando alonso, that is pure sick, there is not rasonable reason, just becouse there are the best in their sports. They are natural talents
