Default "Rabobank open investigation into Luis-Leon Sanchez"

As per the Dutch media. An online translation will have to do for now

The Spanish Anti-Doping Agency already launched an investigation into both Sanchez and Rubiera, apparently.

rather unsurprising that more Rabo dirt comes up after they pulled out.

The AEA (Spanish Anti-Doping Agency) sent the info regarding Del Moral and Celaya to the prosecutor's office. About Martí and the other Spaniards involved, the article says it (presumably the AEA, but it's ambiguous) is supposed to review their role in the whole mess, but it doesn't say an enquiry has officially been launched.

Quick translation:

It's not just the the Spanish authorities that are are starting an investigation into Luis Leon Sanches. His current squad, team Rabobank is starting it's own investigation into the role of the Spaniard in the USADA-report. "He will have to explain to us what happened," spokesperson Richard Plugge announced to Wielerflits during the announcement of the parcours of the Tour de France 2013.

After the report was made public on october 10th the bank-sponsored team first had to deal with the confession of Levi Leipheimer. "Two days later, while reading the extra reports we saw Luis Leon Sanchez's name. I called him on the phone as a representative of the team. At that moment he was on holiday at the other side of the word. My call wasn't answered," says Plugge.

From thursday on the team will meet for three days to talk about the future. The Spaniard can tell his story in a meeting with the team management. Sanchez is suspected to have participated in a training camp with the controversial doping doctor Ferrari while he was racing for Caisse d’Epargne.

Plus Dr García del Moral, Dr Celaya and Mr Martí get mentioned.
I think it's suggesting that AEA (Agencia Estatal Antidopaje) is referring the matter to the Attorney General (Fiscalía General).

Perhaps the combination of national anti-doping agency and national prosecutors working together is going to be the 'new normal' to break though 'peleton Omerta'.

WADA: Testing alone not sufficient to combat doping

World Anti-Doping Code: Article 22.2
Each government will encourage all of its public services or agencies to share information with Anti-Doping Organizations which would be useful in the fight against doping and where to do so would not otherwise be legally prohibited.

Honestly, it´s just a PR stunt.

Rabo knew all along about Rasmussen´s whereabouts and that he filled wrong location to UCI. It´s Rasmussen´s claim.

Rolf Sørensen were caught during the Giro by a danish journalist while he was out riding his bike, and were asked about a comment regarding Theo de Ruijs (probably spelled it wrong) statement that "medical assistance was accepted on Rabobank as long it was done in a safe manner"
He was Rolf´s manager for 3 years.

Rolf looked like a kid who got caught with his fingers in the cookie jar, caught of guard, looked like one big excuse, saying...if it was safe... ehh I mean....uhmm I don´t wanna talk more about this, it irritates me...I have no more comments, and drove away.

In het USADA-rapport tegen Lance Armstrong meldde Volodimir Bileka, ook actief in diezelfde US Postal-ploeg waar Armstrong voor reed, dat Rabobank-renner Luis Leon Sanchez met Caisse d'Epargne onder begeleiding van Ferrari op Sankt-Moritz trainde. Rabobank benadrukt dat de Spanjaard niet betrokken was bij dopingpraktijken.

"De bewering van Bileka dat Luis Leon Sanchez in 2007 in St. Moritz trainde klopt. Zijn toenmalige ploeg Caisse d'Epargne trainde in 2007 met Ferrari," aldus persman bij het Nederlandse team Richard Plugge op Twitter. "Maar Sanchez verklaart geen doping noch dopingadviezen te hebben ontvangen," is de Nederlandse persman duidelijk.
http://www.wielerflits.nl/nieuws/199...n-ferrari.html

Bileka told USADA that LL-Cool S and the Caisse d'Epargne team "trained" with Ferrari in St. Moritz in 07.

Rabo press spokesman Richard Plugge admitted that this fact was correct, but stated that LL had declared that he had neither received any doping advice, nor any doping.
