    I don't think this is full list. Full list has over 50 names, this has only 37 riders.

    Get a load of that list! It would be funny if it weren't so tragic.

    The cyclingnews story said they had only deciphered three out of four boxes of documents. This probably means we will see another list in a week. And what happens if the molecule found in CSC's syringes is identified in the next three weeks?

    This Tour de France is going to be as queer as a clockwork orange.

    What about the footballers? There were supposed to be on the list too. Of course, they are untouchable.

    Did anyone notice that story this week where Luca Pesotto, the former Italian football international tried suicide. He was just appointed Juventus manager after the previous lot were implicated in match fixing. Well as part of the investigation, the piolice found files detailing blood doping regimes at the club, including Pesotto. His name was mentioned a few days ago and, well his next step was to jump from a 4th floor indicates guilt.

    In Italy doping was rampant in soccer in the 90's. Don't know why a similar Operation Puero hasnt happened in Italian cycling, especially as Ferrari etc are based there.

    Yep but as long as you have the likes of Berlusconi and the Agnelli's involved in football in Italy and with so much more money in football than in cycling, it will always get off relatively lightly. Interesting to remember it's 6 or 7 yeasrs since the AS Roma coach Zdanek Zeman outed the Juve doping practices. he ended up in court trying to defend his reputation.
    I've also heard that blood doping is common in football now too. Apparently Chelsea use it to dramatically improve recovery times for muscular injuries. Fifa is only just copping on to the practice....supposedly. We'll see how the match fixing stuff in Italy turns out though. Will be interesting to see how strong the punishments meted out are.

    Is there a match between the codes and the named riders. "Valv" was a code but Valverde is not named. It would have been one of the more obvious connections

    And where are the other names - weren't there supposed to have been more. Suspicious lack of any US riders.

    And final exasperated point - why in the name of Sean Kelly couldn't Dr Evil Ferrari be monitored for 6-12 months, cameras set up and all that.

    And absolute final comment:

    All the names are Spanish EXCEPT for about 5others. If we exclude Hamilton, then we have about 4 others.

    2 Germans -Ulle, and Jaskche
    2 Italians - Scarponi and Basso

    Jaksche and Scarponi are on Spanish teams. This was a Spanish doping ring, so being on a Sp team makes sense they were involved.

    That leaves 2 outstanding names - Ulle and Basso who happen to be the top 2 contenders for the Tour

    Guess which 2 names don't fit. I mentioned it before, but couldnt this be a mistake with those two - Jan and Ivan - sort of caught in the crossfire - mentioned in a phone call simply because they are the two most prominent cyclists in the Giro and most serious contenders for the Tour?

    When speaking with a top cyclist about his performance etc, isnt it likely that the top cyclists are mentioned, even as a benchmark?

    I am exasperated that Valverde was named and now unnamed.
    Given what I saw on Courchevel last year with Mancebo and Valverde holding Lnace's wheel and Jan, Basso, Levu all popped. I mean the reporting from Le Pais has been basically on the money but how did Valverde get out of this. And yes, I am jumping to conclusions. ANd assuming. But I know what I saw and you dont hold Lance's wheel like that out of the blue (Mancebo) when you never could before--and to have two teammates up with Lance on his one big attack. Has never even come close to happening.

    New doping test: if you can hold Lance's wheel, you are doping.

    Well, well, well...there's Jan all right. Jan HRUSKA

    And he's on a Spanish team too. What a coincidence!

    And interestingly, as has been mentioned on other threads not only was he with LS last year and ONCE previously, but he also failed a blood doping test in May, as reported on cyclingnews.com on June 7th:

    Hruska back in G.P. Correios

    By Antonio J. Salmerón

    The Czech rider Jan Hruska (3 Molinos Resort) will return to racing in the G.P. Correios, following his failed health check before the start of the Volta ao Catalunya. Hruska had a reticulocyte (new red blood cell) count that was below the UCI limit, and was forced to rest for two weeks without racing. Subsequent tests have cleared him, and he will form part of his team for the Portuguese race, which starts on Thursday.

    3 Molinos Resort will be led by Jesus del Nero, who finished third in the Euskal Bizikleta. Apart from Hruska and Del Nero, the 3 Molinos Resort squad is composed of Jesús Buendia, José Antonio Baños, Pedro Luis Castillo and Pedro Martínez.

    The 3 Molinos Resort riders in the G.P. Correios are using the race to prepare for the Spanish championships, which will take place in Mostoles, near Madrid, on the last weekend of June. Santos González wants to arrive in top condition for the time trial, as does his Del Nero.

    I'm not trying to rain on ya'lls parade but dont you think the authorities would have covered all their bases in this instance? That would be a pretty bad mix up that I would think they would have double and triple checked.
