Iban Mayo 2007

Iban Mayo has claimed that his B analysis for the banned drug EPO carried out during the Tour de France has proved to be negative. Should his claims be confirmed by the UCI, the Spaniard would be cleared of using the banned drug.

Mayo was tested on the second rest-day of the Tour de France in Pau, the results were published the week after the race, and he was suspended by his team, Saunier Duval-Prodir, on the 30th of July, apparently without pay. Since then there has been a considerable delay in confirming Mayo?s ?A? test, which - according to the rider - has been followed by a negative ?B? test.
