Meanwhile... the UCI catch yet more big fish...

The UCI has informed the riders Mickael Larpe (FRA) and Alessandro Coló (ITA) that they are provisionally suspended.

The decision to provisionally suspend Mr Larpe was made in response to a report from the WADA-accredited Châtenay-Malabry Laboratory indicating an adverse analytical finding (presence of recombinant EPO) in a blood sample collected from him at an in-competition test at the Cholet-Pays de Loire race on 20 March 2010.

The decision to provisionally suspend Mr Coló was taken following the receipt of a report from the WADA-accredited Los Angeles Laboratory indicating an abnormal analysis finding (presence of clenbuterol) in a urine sample taken from the rider during an in-competition test conducted at the Tour of Mexico conducted on 25 April 2010.

The provisional suspensions of Mr Larpe and Mr Coló remain in force until hearings convened by the riders’ National Federations determine whether they breached the UCI Anti-Doping Rules in accordance with Article 21 of the Rules.

Mr Larpe and Mr Coló have the right to request and attend the analyses of their B samples.

Sounds like someone's check bounced.
