Spanish rider Moises DueÃ±as was transported to a court in Tarbes on Thursday morning. After testing positive for blood-booster EPO, police found several forbidden substances in the Barloworld rider's hotel room, which is why he was arrested and held in custody overnight. DueÃ±as will now have to explain himself about the doping substances to a criminal court.
In France, the possession of doping products is a criminal offense. The 27 year-old could face up to five years imprisonment and a fine of up to 75,000 Euros if severe doping products like EPO or anabolic steroids were found. The nature of the products seized has not yet been revealed. A team spokesperson told Cyclingnews, "The doctor of the team is not involved as the substances weren't given by the doctor."
