Продолжая разговор о делах допинговых - дело Лэндиса максимально приблизилось к середине своего начала! The long-awaited decision following the Floyd Landis` arbitration hearing will soon be known. Arbitrators officially closed the hearing this week after one last meeting according to Sports Illustrated. Landis` public hearing occurred during two weeks in May. The decision could determine whether Landis gets to keep his 2006 Tour de France title. He tested positive for high levels of testosterone during Stage 17 of last year`s race. Landis has maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings and has spent the summer since his trial racing 100 mile mountain bike races and making other public appearances. A ruling is expected no later than September 22; arbirators are now formalizing their final decision in writing. However, the decision may not truly be final; the losing side may appeal to the Court of Abitration for Sport. Есть и малорадующие, но хоть какие-то новости об Иване Майо и его, умеющей хорошо скрываться, пробе Б After a long wait, there is finally some news about the counter-analysis of Iban Mayo`s B-sample. The Saunier Duval rider was tested on the second rest day of the Tour de France, and his A sample came back positive for EPO. The B sample was then sent to the laboratory of the University of Gent (Belgium), which finished its analysis on Friday, August 24. Since then, there was no news about the results, but Saturday, Diario Vasco announced that the B sample has been sent to Australia to comply with regulations that every EPO test has to be run in two laboratories. Iban Mayo signed this year for Saunier Duval, but the squad`s management has already announced they will not re-sign Mayo for 2008. The rider is now training in his home region of Bizkaia.
