    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.

    Blimey, we were all a bit agog at Cobo at the time and his miraculous form but where the hell did this come from!

    I know. How was this not picked up earlier?

    I remember at the time, it seemed pretty obvious he was on something pretty powerful (relative to others in the race), and he practically vanished after this.

    There's got to have been an ongoing investigation like the Anderlass one that has implicated him for them to be re-testing?

    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.

    not surprising really, how long before horner is stripped of the win , that really was ludicrous

    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.

    I suppose there's always the appeal process.
