It will be interesting to see how the disqualification came about and where the information came from. The result has always stuck out a bit, but I'm surprised that a Spanish winner of La Vuelta has been collared now.

It seemed no one wanted him after his GT win a bit like Horner.
Yeah, the Vuelta has a bit of a bad rep with its 'one-off' winners... Horner's win was ridiculous, but American cycling fans won't hear of it.

Hang on. Biopassport? I don't understand.

I thought the Biopassport was for longitudinal analysis of a bunch of biological metrics. So if something (say haematocrit) suddenly blips away from the previous base level it sets off an alarm bell.

So how can you get new data for biopassport analysis (short of using a Tardis)? It's not like re-testing an old sample.

Or have I misunderstood as usual.

Yeah until more info comes out it does seem a bit strange.
