Would be true if he was racing in Spain, but actually the second biggest race in Colombia starts this weekend, the Clasico RCN. Then there are a few other races on the South American circuit over the next few months.

One must wonder, at 35 if coming back at this age in decent shape is doable. Not everyone is rebellion ;)

Sevilla's story seems weird. He claims he had a bad fall and lost blood two days before his positive (stage 12), and that he then received the HES in hospital as part of his treatment. He has a medical certificate to prove this. Yet, that stage was a mountain top finish in which he finished 2nd.

Sin embargo, a la UCI el certificado no le ha convencido, ni tampoco entiende cómo un ciclista como Sevilla, que el viernes acaba grave en el hospital después de haber quedado segundo en una etapa dura, dos días después, el domingo, el día del control, es capaz de ganar la contrarreloj final, de 34 kilómetros, y terminar segundo en la general final. Por eso el recurso.

The Friday stage referred to was stage 12.
