Publicus said:Not a good look for Luis Leon Sanchez. He's been pretty quite this year (save his Paris-Nice win). I was expecting more out of him at the TdF.
palmerq said:Mancebo sending messages for drugs this year :S, what a genius mancebo is after the last doping scandal.. What happened to him back then I thought he was quite heavily implicated but I dont think he was banned, or retired for very long at all... Makes sense he woudl send something like that, with rock racing cutting back a lot. I would have thought he´d have had enough of this carry on though.
Why dont they name pererio(or however you spell it), he certainly makes the most sense as to who the tdf winner was, they name LLS with similar evidence.
Alpe d'Huez said:Just more depressing news confirming what we all highly suspected already.
Of course, all this happened while the UCI was telling us just about everyone was clean and cycling really didn't have a doping problem and they were catching the cheats.
issoisso said:His name was on the leaked Puerto documents
I had looked it up not so long ago and Sanchez's name was not on it. Just checked here and here. I know you can't trust wiki, but the lists are very similar to there and on velonews. But if you know something I don't, and something not printed in the English language, then fair enough. Although I did check here and even in my very basic Spanish, I did not see Sanchez's name on there.
Three different references, and one not in English, and still no LLS.
En el documento 3 se observan marcados de distinta forma los nombres de los corredores: Dariuz BARANOWSKY; Josefa BELOKI; Ginpaolo CARUSO; Alberto CONTADOR; Allan DAVIS; David ETXEBARRÍA; Igor GONZÁLEZ DE GALDEANO; Roberto HERAS; Jorg JAKSCHE; Isidro NOZAL; Sergio PAULINHO; Nuno RIBEIRO; Luis León SÁNCHEZ; Michele SCARPONI; Marcos SERRANO y Ángel VICIOSO.
The second reference includes initials of riders’ name that appeared on another training document:
En el reverso del documento 31 se localizan unas anotaciones manuscritas con el título “INDIVIDUALIZACIÓN” en el que se identifican a distintos corredores del equipo LIBERTY-SEGUROS WÜRTH por sus iniciales: R. H. (Roberto HERAS), M. S. (Marcos SERRANO), J. B. (Joseba BELOKI), I. G. (Igor GONZÁLEZ), A. V. (Ángel VICIOSO), J. J. (Jorg JAKSCHE), A. D. (Alan DAVIS), L. (sin identificar), A. C. (Alberto CONTADOR) .
Mellow Velo said:If Floyd wasn't desperate for a step up, he should have avoided Ball's chancers.
