Riders sue Guardia Civil and Spanish federation head

Jörg Jaksche and at least five Spanish riders are suing the Guardia Civil and Eugenio Bermudez, the general secretary of the Spanish cycling federation, for violating their privacy and damaging their reputations, according to radsport-aktiv.de. The case stems from allegations that the riders are involved in the Fuentes doping scandal.

Jaksche, Joseba Beloki, David Etxebarria, Isidro Nozal, the Osa brothers, and others unnamed at this point, claim that Bermudez illegally gave files concerning them to the UCI as well as the organisers of the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. The Spanish judge who handled the case had allowed only very limited distribution of the material.
