Good. Even though Puerto was nearly 4 years ago I think it right they continue to go after the bad 'uns. A DNA match to bags of blood has to count for something.

Well he's not been able to ride in Italy for quite a while now and it has made no difference to his current employers caisse d'epargne, however if the ban is extended & if he can't get in the tdf again I would imagine he's stuffed.
