    Heras suspended for EPO during Vuelta

    Sad cycling news: "Spanish rider Roberto Heras, four-time winner of the Vuelta a Espana, has been suspended by his Liberty Seguros team following a non-negative A sample test for EPO from stage 20 of the the 2005 Vuelta."

    We're running out of heros. I wonder if the guy who bought Heras' winning bike on eBay for 24,600 Euros will want a refund?

    Does non-negative mean positive?

    It's only the A sample so the wait begins. I am surpirsed that they suspended him now, what happens if the B sample comes back negative? Will they welcome him back and will he be happy to come back, thiscould be the start of some bad blood (no pun intended).

    Edit I read the second article and LS does support his innocence and felt pressure to suspend him after news leaks.

    Isnt news like this supposed to be kept confidential until the other sample clears?


    There is so much media bullshit in cycling now, it really pisses me off.
