Maybe he was taking some Russian over-the counter supplement that just happened to contain EPO.
Or ate some tainted cow meat. Anyone seen any fast beef cows with endurance running around? :D (I have to keep it light on this kind of stuff anymore)

Seriously, though. It sucks for The Cossack and I liked him. I don't know if a "B" negative result has ever overturned an "A" positive. Most often not.

Can't think of any cases in cycling, unless you count Iban Mayo's as one
 
Kristoff says that Galimzyanov "seemed like a really great guy" and that he was one of his best friends on katusha (Galim was one of few guys on the team who spoke english well). But he also adds that the pressure put on Galimzyanov's shoulders was immense, considering he was Russia's main hope for the olympics.

It's easy to throw no-name Russians and Spaniards under the bus. They pick on the less-worldly people who are less apt to hire big-gun lawyers and actually fight back. And they have less to lose.
^this. +1

goes down for the other half the peloton, aka, all at the pointy end. sorry Denis

He isn't a ''no-name'' though. Far from it. Russia is a big part of the UCI's plans for the ''globalisation'' of cycling so it's a pretty big blow for the sport when that country's best sprinter and best hope for a medal in the Olympic Road Race gets busted.

ride bicyle 260+ km across Alpes... That's just pure doping, and we all know it's true.
Yeah, pure doping. Couldn't be a combination of talent and hard work.

If I remember correctly, Bo Hamburger, the first EPO-positive in cycling, got cleared on his B-sample. Fabrizio Guidi tested positive for EPO as well, that got overturned with his B-sample (he's working for Saxo Bank now).

Big riders always get away with it. Apart from Contador, Basso, Valverde, Scarponi, Vino, Di Luca, Pellizotti, Dekker, Petacchi, Rasmussen, Ricco, Millar, Heras, Landis, Hamilton, etc.

There has never been a worse argument made.

I'm telling you that i personaly know some athletes, and they are qualified for the Olympics, but don't have a shot at medal and they dope. So tell me what the best ones do? Also I said that they run 100m in 9.58, jump 8.95m in lenght, 2.40m in height...

Kolobnev hasn't even had a single race day...



This really shows you people for a bigots you are.
I am a bigot for thinking the majority of Russian, English, German, American, Belgian, French, Italian, Colombian etc. pro cyclists dope?
Really?
Or am I a bigot simply because I include one of your guys in my suspicions?
Hasn't even had a single race day? Why? Is that the only time doping works?
How about during preparation for racing? No benefit? OK.............
