Aketza's B-sample negative

Miguel Madariaga revealed in an interview with the Noticias de Gipuzkoa today that Aketza Peña indeed returned a negative B-sample last year. Aketza tested positive for testoserone in April's Giro de Trentino, a result which was made public half-way through the Giro d'Italia. Euskaltel withdrew Aketza from the race and since then we haven't heard a word about his case. It has been speculated, mainly on this site, that the counter-analysis came back negative, and today Miguel confirmed that. Though, Miguel couldn't say more than that, as he didn't know what Aketza's representatives were doing with the case right now. I sincerely hope he manages to clear his name, but in today's climate that's not very easy even if you have the law on your side.
