The Luxembourg Anti-Doping Agency (ALAD) hopes to wrap up its investigation of Fränk Schleck by the end of the year, according to the agency's director, Dr. Anik Sax. In September, Schleck was linked to Operación Puerto doctor Eufemiano Fuentes by a payment into a Swiss bank account in 2006.
"It involves a complicated case," she told wort.lu, with it being particularly difficult to gather evidence against the rider. Still, she hoped to conclude the case within the next two months.
The CSC Saxo Bank rider admitted making the payment but said that it was for training plans and denied any involvement in doping.
