Iban protest third test

Iban and his team of representatives and lawyers are not happy with the UCI's decision to perform a third B-sample test. Iban finds it ridiculous, and rightly so, that the third test will be carried out in the only lab that's come up with a positive result so far: " They will get the result they want there (in Chanenay-Malabry)," he said frustrated. "In Paris they'll be able to analyse it time and time again until they get the result they want. They'll do it 15 times over if that's what it takes". Iban's representatives have asked the UCI to explain how on earth this is legal, but has of course not received an answer as of yet. Iban has therefore said that neither he nor one of his representatives will be present in Paris for the testing. The Spanish papers are all on Iban's side in this fight, with many highly-regarded newspapers calling the UCI criminals and claiming Iban is being prosecuted and the subject of a witch-hunt. I couldn't agree more. Luckily his national cycling federation share our opinions, as a spokesman for the RFEC said that "we won't change our decision no matter the result of the third test. We cannot judge the same thing twice. We've shelved the case".

Man, this is the story of the century. Unluckily with Iban as prey :S

The result of the third test is given, no about it. If the test result not satisfied UCI then they do a fourth test, I bet my Orca on that. The rules change by the time and case... And yes, this is the story of the century.

Totally agree with you both. But, seriously, do you have an Orca??

Animo Iban. Que se jodan todos! Porque eres un vasco puro y no te falta nada de dopaje. Gora Euskadi, y que pronto vendras a casa (EUSKALTEL). GORA IBAN!!!
