Iban talks


For the first time since the news of his positive sample broke, Iban has talked to the public. In yesterday's Noticias de Gipuzkoa, Iban outlined his frustration on the mess that is the B-sample testing. "I don't know anything about the result of the counter-analysis. It would have been great to be informed about what's going on soon, as the waiting is killing me. It's so hard to just wait. Every day I wake up I hope this is going to be the day. But the days pass and I'm left with no clue whatsoever. I hope I'll learn the result soon." He also talked of the hard times after the positive:" For sure I was feeling down. I was feeling very down sometimes. Though sometimes I'm feeling better, mainly when the people who love me, like my family and friends, are around. But there's no hiding I was going through some bad moments, as what happened was like a slap in the face". No more was said, but at least it's good to hear he's alive after all the silence.

Okay, I have a strange question, but perhaps someone knows the answer..
When Iban got suspended, it stated he has been training on his own back in Bizkaia.
I think when a rider gets supsended, he is no longer part of that team.
He does not wear his team kit or ride his team bike?
What kind of bike does Iban ride on his own? I don't think they own their team bikes do they?

Does Iban ride on a motorbike? Didn't know that. Well, he didn't look that bad actually.
