The Luxemburger National Anti-Doping Agency (ALAD) will meet Tuesday evening to discuss the Fränk Schleck case. The CSC Saxo Bank rider admitted wiring nearly 7,000 euro to an account belonging to Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes, but Schleck said it was only for training plans.

It is not known whether the agency will make a final decision. According to the tageblatt.lu, the governing board has three options: it can close the case without further action, it can send it on to the disciplinary committee or it can continue its investigation.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung disclosed in September that Schleck had wired the money for training problems, but the rider has denied that it was in any way doping-related, and that he did not know that Fuentes was involved. The team placed Schleck on inactive status, after he testified before the ALAD the beginning of October. He was racing again in November. (SW)
