Rodríguez: "It's not possible to do another analysis"

José Rodríguez, Iban's lawyer, has stated that doing another counter-analysis is will not be possible as the case against Iban is closed. "It's not possible to do another analysis", he said to El Correo. "The procedure is closed, Iban is acquitted. Whatever the UCI decides to do from now on is only to make damage to his reputation". The rules are that when a national federation receives information that a test has returned negative and decides to shelve the case, the only thing the UCI can do is to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. That's the rules, but the UCI don't seem willing to follow their own rules I'm afraid. Rodríguez further said that the test done in Gent was "clearly negative", and that the UCI are not entitled to do another test. And, just for the record, the newspaper confirms what I've said the last days; the test done in Sydney was indeed negative.
