Sastre and three other CSC riders are suspected of doping in this year’s Tour de France. CSC has not heard anything officially, according to their press officer. The Danish news site TV2 Sporten is reporting that the other CSC riders under suspicion are Frank Schleck, Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O’Grady.
Apparently, TdF doctors have re-opened lab tests from the Tour and there are rumours of the riders using CERA, the previously undetectable form of EPO for which Ricardo Ricco (Saunier Duval-Scott) was expelled from the Tour.
