The counter-analysis for the Spaniard Mikel Astarloza’s B sample confirms the positive test earlier this year.

He failed a World Anti Doping Agency doping control on June 26, 25 days prior to his win in the 16th stage of the Tour de France, the mountain stage to Bourg-Saint-Maurice.

Astarloza tested positive for the banned blood booster Erythropoietin.

After Inigo Landaluze's failed doping test in July, he is the second rider from Spain's Euskaltel-Euskadi team that has tested positive for the new generation CERA.
