Animal said:So what?
What Basso values are you talking about? Pat McQuaid held up his numbers from the Giro as a sign that cycling is getting cleaner, because the values went down during the race as they should.MajorTom said:Variations in Basso's and Armstrong's blood values were bigger and they were not suspended.

Animal said:Worthy of Public Strategies.
No doubt about that.python said:the uci will appeal it. almost guaranteed.
python said:don't recall all the technicalities, but wasn't valjavec explaining it by diarrhea/dehydration ? if that's still the basis for his acquittal, the uci will take to cas. they simply can't afford the passport blemished by such excuses.
hrotha said:Have the exact irregularities in Tadej's passport been published anywhere? Did he have lower hematocrit than usual? Did his other values point to some good ol' blood harvesting?
MajorTom said:I'm not sure but I think his explanation was that he was having serious problems with stomach and also training hard for the Giro, so his hematocrit levels were lower than usual.
quick google translate
Tadej is back!
May was third in the UCI announcement that the blood levels in a biological passport Tadej Valjavec abnormal. On this basis, did not appear at the Giro d'Italia d'Italia 2010, and it can be suspended Ag2r team. After heavy and long three months of proof of innocence by the NAK (national anti-doping commission) met on 07.29.2010 for the innocent.
Thank your loved ones and of course the team with whom we cooperate in seeking justice in the maze of allegations made by the UCI. Similarly, the UCI has never stated exactly what I am accused, it was all even more difficult. It seems absurd to me that I was on the basis of screening formula sentenced to breach anti-doping rules, without a single direct evidence. I can say that the UCI has acted incorrect, but also did not follow their rules in regard to factors such as training at altitude. I must stress that I did not challenge the method itself, but I think that the method used in a different way. Derogation under this formula does not necessarily reflect the violation of rules, but also the fact that someone is ill or otherwise or whether it is exposed to certain conditions which show abnormal values, but people we are different. Unfortunately, the UCI by this method only sees the use of illicit funds, but not any individual's health problems. Otherwise, you can do much useful for health sports and athletes.
At yesterday's talks with club managers, Vincent Lavenujem, we were both the same opinion that as soon as I return to the scene of the games. When I returned, depending on gastroscopy examination next week, as it is now my health is first. If the gastroscopy showed that one-month treatment was successful and that the stomach will not have more problems that I found myself in this situation, the match back on the 12th September and finish the race season Mon Lombardy.
Finally, I thank all who have me on the longest and toughest race stood by and believed in me.
….it's just a moment, just a moment, just a moment, this time will pass......
Thanks, Tadej Valjavec
