Funny to look back on the Tour of Turkey thread. Except from Ryo, everyone knew what was going on. 34 y.o guy coming out of nowhere to suddenly climb like Contador...

Basically the most obvious case in years. I also assumed he would be caught as there surely was no way that team had the resources for a decent, undetectable doping program.

The test was from April 24, almost three months ago. You'd think that after his outrageous performance and the scepticism from other teams there would be some urgency to get his tests through the laboratory fast. Now UCI doesn't have the time to wait for the B-sample. Have they been retesting and retesting until they finally found some EPO, or does it usually take this long time do a proper test for EPO?

A cynic would say that UCI needs some low profile drug busts to re-claim the anti-doping moral high ground...

Exactly...This guy maybe earned 20.000 a year from his Turkish team, has nothing but cycling, has to use easily detectable EPO, and so on.
The strange thing is: they (UCI) want to build new markets all over the world. A Tour of Turkey winner from a small Turkish team would be exactly the right winner for this aim. So why do they catch him? Strange.
