The Spanish Cycling Federation has confirmed that it will not take action against Rabobank's Pedro Horrillo, the team has announced. The federation's disciplinary committee confirmed that there had been an administrative misunderstanding over an asthma medication.

The problem arose after an anti-doping control following the "Brabantse Pijl". Horillo had a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for asthma medication, but had switched to a new medication not covered by the TUE. His doctor did not think it necessary to apply for a new TUE, although this should have been done.
