Yep it was the they say. I guess he had a better lawyer than AC.

Well holy schitt....they actually made the right call.

I have no idea if Rogers was doping or not (wouldn't surprise me....he has a bit of a dodgy past), but there was WAY too much possibility that he got bad meat at a race his team was forced to compete in, thanks to the UCI.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

what CK said. The Rogers and Contador cases are in no way comparable.

It helped to have a plausible explanation too While I cannot say for certain I am sure they were targeting AC for blood doping and the Clen positive was just Serendipity. Not what they were wishing but hardly an accident. MR had lots of previous help in that several other sports had Clen positives in China. Table tennis, soccer, On another site the positive that a chinese rider had was not challenged by his federation and he was thrown under the bus by his federation. I think that is just their way of saying we don't have meat contamination problems in China. National Face Saving.
