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? :o

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.

It sounds like lesser riders again.

Someone here (sorry, forgot who) posted a 'theory' about what was or wasn't in the interests of the UCI in terms of who gets busted. It'll be interesting to see just what 'level' of rider these names turn out to be. If the theory is right then it won't be any established names from today's pantheon (like Cancellara et al), but less known names, whose transgressions won't have a major impact.

Looking forward to this like my next toothache.

For that many riders to be caught in such a short period of time I have to think that a new test was unveiled. And that would <sort of> make sense, i.e. bust some people with the new test right before the Tour so riders know that can't use whatever drug it is during the Tour. Better than the bad publicity of more positives during the Tour (which I'm sure we'll get anyway).

I misread Cyclingnews (blame their badly written copy) :p

...but stem from positive controls at this year's Tour de Romandie and the Tour de Suisse, according to the French newspaper, which is owned by the Tour organiser ASO.

Unless you reckon they're actually feeding drugs to the riders, I don't think it's fair to hold them solely responsible; although they do seem to love making the absolute worst out of a bad situation.

No, it's these riders who are f*cking up the sport. The UCI are simply f*cking up the ASO.
The one licence Pat does have a tight hold on, once again, is the July hunting season.
