Team Liquigas was visited for the second time during its off-season training camps by International Cycling Union (UCI) anti-doping controllers. The Italian ProTour team – in Benicásim, Spain, from December 10 to 18 – was subjected to blood checks according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. The UCI had previously visited the team during its Italian camp last month in Salsomaggiore Terme (Lombardia), Italy.

Tour de France stage winner Daniele Bennati, cyclo-cross specialist Enrico Franzoi and sprinter Murilo Fischer, all of whom will arrive today, were not tested.
