Youve got me all wrong. I am firmly in the camp that ALL cyclists dope. ALL athletes dope. Of course anyone who went to Fuentes did so for more than Diet plans.

But when it comes to the question of whether Contadors and Schlecks links to Fuentes were similar, id say that there was stronger proof linking Frank to doping, because he was caught giving money.

This is what I believe as well. It's the same for Ferrari. There is only one reason.

how come with all the nicknames it is only ones that can be linked to cycling that are out in the open, surely at least one of the names must be tracked back to another sport

Cycling is small time, diddly ****. Going after players from Real Madrid and Barca might make problems for a politician.

Other than your suppositions do you have anything else to support your interpretation of who AC was? It's not a first time i've seen people claim it without anything to back it up

Ángel Casero is mentioned here. I've seen the same thing, but I don't have the time right now to check.

A Pro cyclist going to a doctor trained in a different field for training and diet then that doctor gets busted for all things Operacion Puerto.

But AC only went for training and diet...

Frank Schleck only went to Fuentes for training and diet too.

Hmmmmm. It must be that it's just a very small world. I mean, how many gynecologists in Spain are so good at training and diet plans that pro cyclists, pro footballers and pro tennis players will flock to him for high priced advice and blood analysis? Can't be more than a few...

well you know since receiving the advice Frank Schleck has gotten married and beconme a fater so maybe it wasn't cycling advice he wanted.

Yep we would need Giovanni Falcone ( Judge who took on the Mafia) or Rodrigo Lara Bonilla (lawyer who fought Pablo Escobar) style characters to tackle that.

And from what ive seen, any such person would meet a similar end. (drive by)
