    CAS Confirms Valverde's Italian Ban | Cyclingnews.com

    Knowing the UCI, they'll drag this out for another two years... Sucks to see a rider of his attacking nature out for a couple of years as much as the governing bodies take so long to get to a conclusion but if he blood doped then his ass shoulda been out two years ago...

    Just remember that it has dragged on for this long because of Valverde's appeals and legal runarounds, not because of the UCI or CONI or any other governing body. Valverde's the one fighting a losing battle and prolonging the obvious. Many of the best attackers and most exciting riders of recent times have been dopers.
