CONI asks for 4 years and 3 months ban of figure skater Carolina Kostner. for aiding former boyfriend Alex Schwazer in his doping and covering for him.

Seems a bit harsh when Scarponi got 3 months for talking to Ferrari about what would have happened if he had taken one more bag.

Have not been following the forums today so sorry if this was already posted, a journalist asking teams how many TUE's they have (used in 2014) ...

Image

Movistar, Tinkoff, Cannonade, CCC, AG2R, Topsport, Bardiani, Bretagne, Caja Rujal, Androni, MTN, Neri Sottoli, Cofidis all gave no response.

Classic response from Astana :D

“A three member UCI commission consisting of Pierre Zappelli, Hans Höhener and André Hurter will assess each candidate to determine the most eligible for the 18 Pro Tour team spots.”


Zappelli, Höhener and Hürter are in the Licence Commission since 2004 (=Hein Verbruggen era) until 14 June 2016.

Good one. Europcar not so much better. "We haven't got anything to say to you about that." Maybe MPCC should update them on how to handle such questions.

Lampre are probably the worst of the lot - 'there are better things to talk about, sprinters, climbers, blah, blah, blah" - if you don't want to answer, keep it simple.

BMC probably did the best 'not telling you' answer.

I wonder what is the other TUE for Sky, maybe it is much better than horse steroids. :p

19 doping cases in Norway in 2014 (5 of them tested positive in 2013, one was an appeal after a positive in 2012 (MTB'er Nina Gässler) and three cases from cycling are also probably older)

While investigating doping among amateur cyclists, bodybuilders etc, Italian police found a blood centrifuge, as well as steroids and EPO. Some of it was seized from the van of a small local transport firm,

DOPING HIDDEN BETWEEN MOZZARELLE - The investigation ended with the interception of the courier from Caserta saliva periodically to supply not only Sassuolo, Maranello and Formigine, but also the market of the province of Modena. In the circumstances have been found - hidden in the van used by the man who really should have carried only mozzarella and other typical local products - a large quantity of drugs and anabolic base of erythropoietin, EPO.

Don't do it, blackcat. There's only one glorious emerald green dope frenzy kit.

And it's one of the all time greatest.

Oh goodie. More foxes guarding the hen house...

But public health experts contend that the F.D.A.’s reluctance to act in this case is symptomatic of a broader problem. The agency is not effectively policing the $33 billion-a-year supplements industry in part because top agency regulators themselves come from the industry and have conflicts of interest, they say. In recent years, two of the agency’s top officials overseeing supplements — including one currently on the job — were former leaders of the largest supplement industry trade and lobbying group.
