Matxin frustrated by "Caso Mayo"


Joxean "Matxin" Fernández, head of the new-names Saunier Duval-Scott, is still without a clue as to what's going to happen with Iban. "Matxin" is lost for words when it comes to the UCI's terrible handling of the case, and told DEIA: "Why isn't he decleared negative? I just don't get it". He hopes to have Iban with him in 2008, as he's sorely needed on the team, but isn't very optimistic about his eventual return to racing. "I believe he can return, as he can take his case to CAS. But anyway, he wil probably never be able to run the Giro, the Tour or the Vuelta, or any other Pro Tour events for that matter, as he would be stopped by the organisers. It's horrible, and we need a decision soon". "Matxin" says it all, really. Iban may, and probably will, return, but return to what? A racing-calendar without any races in it? Well done UCI, well done...

He, fact is that if he goes to Cas, he can race again everywhere. At least I think so.
There is no legal reason why not. I remember the WC in Stuttgart. The organizers didn't want Valverde to involve, but via the CAS he departed :)
So there is still some hope.

I know that there is no really good answer to this, but the UCI said that they would wait to have someone from Ibans party present at the next blood test. Has the test happened yet? and if it has didnt they say it would take 7-10 days? even though 10 days to the UCI can mean 3 months...
