Looks like another rider goes down...

AIGLE, Switzerland -- Spanish rider Jose Antonio Redondo was suspended Friday by cycling's governing body for testing positive for testosterone.

Redondo gave an out-of-competition urine sample with traces of testosterone on March 13, the International Cycling Union (UCI) said.

Redondo was told on April 9 that he was provisionally banned, the UCI said.

The Spanish Cycling Federation will investigate whether Redondo has committed an anti-doping violation.

The UCI said the rider has requested a provisional hearing into his suspension. Redondo has the right to request and attend the analysis of his backup sample.

Redondo rides for the Andalucia-Cajasur team, which has second-tier Pro Tour Continental status.

He rode for the Astana team in 2007 but was fired for breaking team rules.

The theory of ex-Astana riders testing positive is gaining even more momentum :eek:

Does anyone know which team rule he broke, for getting dumped by Astana?

Astana DUMPED him in case he would further muddify their image. You dont need to dope with testosterone... Thats dumb!

Adrenocorticotropic hormone, human growth hormone, Insulin all will do wonders for them and are undetectable. Or IGF-1.

Well, I'd say Astana did the right thing by DUMPING him, wouldn't you? :)

At the time they said it had nothing to do with doping.
