Colombian Federico Muñoz, who was one of the nine riders involved in the Vuelta a Guatemala doping affair, has accused Ricardo Rodriguez, the doctor of the Guatemalan Cafe Quetzal team, of supplying him with the doping products that caused him to test positive. Muñoz, who finished fourth in the race but tested positive for EPO, was declared innocent by the Colombian cycling federation's disciplinary commission, saying that this was the first time that something like this has happened to him in 20 years of competition.

"The truth should come out," said Muñoz. "The guilty party is doctor Rodriguez, in whom we had complete faith in to administer recuperative products, and unfortunately this sad situation occurred.

The Colombian federation's disciplinary commission is now looking into the accusations.
