Iban finished in Saunier


Iban will not form part of the Saunier Duval roster for 2008. "Matxin" Fernández revealed this in an interview with DEIA today. Iban's B-sample has still not returned, as we all know, and "Matxin" says that the team knows nothing about the delay. "We don't know anything", he said. Therefore I must say that it's kind of a weird thing to do, as the B-sample may not be negative. Of course, it'll likely be positive, but as it's still an unknown I'm critical of Saunier's actions. Iban is one of 11 riders that will leave the team at the end of the year.

well, that's the end of his career in uci pro tour, even if the b-sample is negative. No team will like to have a rider that may be doping

I agree. This is the end. But a new star is born as my heart beats for Anton. A real fighter...

Bad new. Now is posible is positive, but not sure, could be negative, but Saunier doesnt want a suspicious rider for UCI.

If you are negative, please go back to where you belong!

can he come back to Euskaltel if he is NEGATIVE?

Sure, that would have been awesome:D

Did Iban only have a one year contract then? If he had a longer contract, they can't sack him if the B test is negative. And surely he's no more suspicious than Simoni, Piepoli and Ricco.
