First comment: All of them just from the two swiss races? no others? that's just plain weird. With so many races in that period.

It's because both these races are owned and run by ASO.

Perhaps they were testing out new Dynepro tests before the Tour?

I just hate how they wait until the tour. And then do it soo late that the teams can't replace a rider. For all the ASOs desires to squash doping, they certainly announce them when they think the publicity will be in their favor.

So who do we think they are?

If they used the 'retro active' testing process to bust Dekker...

On the other hand, I think it was said they actually tested positive in those Tours...

So that could mean they used the newly discovered Dynepo test as in the Dekker case, OR, as was reported before, ASO tested the 'new test' they are going to use in the TdF.. (if those 2 don't overlap). If they test for Dynepo, I don't think big names will surface, because I doubt the big fish are using that (still).

Marco Marzano and Massimiliano Mori (LAM) were in Romandie and Suisse, and they were dropped from LAM roster the 29th.
