Alejandro Valverde has responded to his meeting with the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) yesterday in Rome, Italy. Valverde declared that he had no doubt the ongoing investigation will eventually prove that he is innocent and that not much evidence has appeared against him.
Valverde's statement reiterated that he does not and never has had anything to do with doping. Furthermore, he was not sure what the accusations were based upon. "My legal representative has tried to obtain the data upon which CONI bases its case on." However, such data was not given to anybody on the Valverde camp.
Valverde's statement went on to say that no documents had been produced that showed a case against him. The Caisse d'Epargne rider did not want to preoccupy himself too much with the case for now. "I put all my efforts into my daily training to achieve the goals that I have set for myself this season."
