Azevedo is just speaking BS, the team also has young lions such as Joao Benta and Henrique Casimiro as their main gc riders. I guess it makes sense, since Azevedo was the DS when papi Horner won the Vuelta...Remember the new portuguese team headed by José Azevedo, the one who supposedly was going to be a breath of fresh air in portuguese cycling?
Today it's known that the medical doctor of the team is non other than Benjamin Carvalho, best known as "Dr. Levanta Mortos" (translated to someone like the doctor who ressucitate the dead), a character with a vast known association to dubious practices and athletes.
So, after all, it will be more of the same, I just hope the team fails quickly.
TBF, the UCI kinda did him dirty, they took away all of his results and gave him a non-backdated ban.There's some rumors the legend Balárcon is going to be cleared and return to action soon. Just Tugão for you.
Well, they did to him what they can do to everyone according to the rules. The instances of leniency are probably the absurd ones, not this one.TBF, the UCI kinda did him dirty, they took away all of his results and gave him a non-backdated ban.
If he gets cleared I expect everyone to throw caution to the wind next year, Imagine a big showdown between Balarcon and Mauri Moreira!
