Spanish Sports Council also asks for González and Landaluze to be sanctioned

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Although the Competition Committee of the Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC) decided to not to sanction Euskaltel-Euskadi's Aitor González and Iñigo Landaluze for doping offences in 2005, the Spanish Sports Council has, along with the UCI, asked for them to be punished.

According to todociclismo, Rafael Blanco has decided to take the Aitor González affair to the Spanish Sports Disciplinary Committee. It is likely, therefore, that the Court of Arbitration for Sports denies the Aitor González hearing and leaves this affair in Spanish hands.

With respect to Iñigo Landaluze, his legal defence convinced the RFEC Competition Committee that his high testosterone level was not abnormal. However, the UCI has disagreed with his and has asked the CAS to impose a penalty.
