Alexandro makes two points for his appeal neither addresses the realities of his involvement with Fuentes. The UCI have proved to be typically toothless with this rider given his pro tour white knight status. If he is clean then say so and let the evidence speak, if not take your punishemnnt and head back to Spain. It seams that the basic tennant for a rider when busted is to avoid and deflect we keep seeing it. He will not be missed and hopefully the UCI will grow some big ones and stop him from continuing this charade.
