This case is the failure of the rider's professional association - Surely a well run, well organised and well funded association would have the resources to support Cardoso's legal fees - Riders should do better to support other riders.

Well, Four-year ban.

As with similar cases in the past, the period of ineligibility already served is likely to be taken into account, meaning his four-year ban would be backdated to start from that date and thus run to July 2021.


See, this is one of the cases where a backdated ban actually makes sense, since he actually was sidelined (essentially banned, though the word was different).

The words are "provisionally suspended."

I know what the word(s) is. My point was that he was unable to ride during the 16-month period, therefore his ban should obviously be backdated, otherwise he wouldn't have been given a four-year ban, he'd have been given a five-year-and-four-months ban.

Given this is what the rules clearly state, you are merely stating the bleeding obvious.
