The main problem however is in the manner in which the Italians got hold of the evidence from the Fuentes case and there are more evidentiary problems which can be constructed due to the sudden appearance of this evidence in the Italian case. For example how can the sanctity of the evidence be proven if it has not been handled in a manner like it should have been handled
exactly. they say they have a match, but the way they got it just kills the result.

Valverde leading the UCI rankings.

Pro cycling is one screwed up sport, that's for sure.

Whatever... you can always not watch it if you don't like what you see. All I can say is that Valverde is the most complete rider at the moment, despite all what he might/might not have done a few years back.

Constantly controlled. Constantly winning. Never showing off. A true CHAMPION. To all the haters, regards. But check this, yeah.

You must have got top marks at fan-boy school!

The only thing "champion" about Valverde is his legal team. I don't hate him, just wish he would go away - like all dopers.

Yeah, I'm a fan of his. And of Cancellara. And Vino. And Contador. And many others. If you just wish he'd go away, I wish you would. Just different opinions.

Quiz of the day: In which race/races has Valverde tested positive?

You can take a look at this while you post back and try to enlighten me:

There is this "thing" called a Non-Analytical Positive... This thing, this ethereal concept, has materialized for Mr. Valverde.

He has been nicked.

The glove does fit. The DNA is a match. Valv.Piti is identified. It is what it is.

He still races, which may be where the confusion lies but even that will be coming to an end shortly.

Protest as you wish but I hope you are not offended upon finding the ears deaf among the many here.

I dunno. His defence seems pretty rock solid.:)

Alejandro Valverde has accused the presidents of the International Cycling Union (UCI) and the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) of having “an institutional and personal viciousness” against him. The Spaniard also continued to protest against claims that he has been involved in doping, saying, “No banned substance has ever been detected in my body and my biological profile is flawless.”

That's the only truth. The Italians (and many other nations) don't have currently any riders that can compare to the Spanish stars - Valverde, Contador, Luis León Sánchez, Carlos Sastre, Samuel Sánchez, etc. Envy plays an important role in this issue.

All the evidence against Valverde is a blood bag from 2004. It's just not fair. He's the leader of the UCI, and that hurts many.

How is it fair on the other riders who have already served their punishment and lost 2 years of their careers for the same thing , what gives him the right to get away with what others were punished for . he took the risk and legal loopholes have been the only thing keeping him on his bike competively , its a joke that has dragged on for way too long.

Is it fair that a racer with a blood bag with EPO is still racing against riders who have never been linked to doping?

Is it fair to say there were no public health risks when a gynecologist stores blood and deliver it without any control from officials like in not yet developped countries?

Your own prejudice speaks volumes....
Where, exactly, is envy written into the mandate of CONI, of WADA, of UCI, of CAS?
Envy plays a big part in fanboys' minds, on an institutional level you'll find that it is so NOT the motivating factor. Valverde is as dirty as they come, and has been for the better part of his career. I really, sincerely, hope that the UCI make an example of him and ban him for life, strip him of all titles, sue him to bankruptcy, have his epo-laden balls sizzled with some bangers and mash for breakfast.
Who're you to fret?

It's just not fair.

They did have, until these countries acted upon the OP evidence and took these riders down, while Spain turned a blind eye.
Now, that's really not fair.
