    Ezequiel Mosquera Tests Positive

    Reports: Mosquera positive at Vuelta
    By Andrew Hood • Published: Sep 30th 2010 7:29 AM EDT

    Spanish media outlets are reporting that Ezequiel Mosquera, a stage-winner and second overall at the 2010 Vuelta a España, has tested positive.


    Mosquera rode an aggressive Vuelta.

    The Spanish daily MARCA is citing unnamed sources that Mosquera and another teammate on the Xacobeo-Galicia team failed doping controls during the recent Spanish tour, which ended September 19 in Madrid with Mosquera on the second step of the podium. There was no specific reference as to the substance for which Mosquera is alleged to have tested positive.

    The riders evidently have not been notified by anti-doping officials.

    Xacobeo-Galicia sport director Alvaro Pino told the Spanish wire service EFE the team has not received advisories from any anti-doping officials.

    “Someone just told me and I surprised because we on the team are sure that this doping case is impossible,” Pino said. “I still have not spoken to Ezequiel, but I will try to in the next few hours.”

    Mosquera, 34, had the best Vuelta of his career, winning the decisive summit finish at Bola del Mundo and finally finishing on the podium following three finishes in the top-5.

    Mosquera recently signed a contract to join the Vacansoleil team in Holland in a two-year deal. Even before the latest doping reports, officials from the Spanish team Xacobeo-Galicia were speaking of ending its support of the squad going into next season.


    If true, the report would have a devastating impact on the Vuelta and Spanish cycling. The reports come on the same day that three-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador was suspended after he tested positive during the 2010 Tour.

    So what did he eat?
    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    Lesson. When racing, avoid Spanish meat.

    No no no, this is not tragic. This is truly a GREAT day for the sport.

    No, it's tragic all right. Just think of our beloved sport with both eyes bedarkened. First Contador, now Mosquera? Say it ain't so, Joe! Cycling as competitive sport is with this sad news officially dead. Little young Spaniards will not ever again dare to dream of flying up the hills on angels' wings. No longer will they reach into their self-refrigerating suitcase of courage and pull out a bag or two of blood, some needles and some neat-looking translucent tubes. What will they become? Doctors? Lawyers? Presidents?? I dare say, sir, that Señor Zapatero has now two reasons to lay in bed sleepless with worry, nerves split and frayed and worn all jittery over the thought of his impending electoral challenges. I put it to you, sir! We will not take this lying down! No bans for Mosquera and Contador!

    "Dōmo arigatō, Mr. Roboto" Now go back to your little corner and think about what you did. ------At least for a little while.

    Dare to dream???? They sacrificed their dreams right at the moment when they decided to enrich their performance with epo's. I have no sympathy for people who try to get rich and then go and rob a bank. Cheating is not a dream. Then it becomes something else completely.

    What happened is great because it shows to everyone else what is really going on. Truth is the best. It would be sad if those 2 dreamers continued without being exposed for what they really are, which is what I felt the first time I saw Contador. This is officially 149th happiest moment in my life.

    Being a witness to the world where parallel lines collide all the time, being challenged doesn't seem all that bad. Please get me on a wagon.

    Get those robots off the bike, one by one. Two at a time is good too.
    But your not stopping doping one at a time. Despite all the efforts, doping appears to still be prevalent, and we're jsut replacing one doper with another.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Man, all the journalists spent the entire year talking about how clean cycling is now. In 2010 a former doper won the Giro, the TdF winner tests positive, and the Vuelta runner up tests positive. This sucks. I'm naive and thought cycling had taken a step forward recently.

    The guy won TDF and he doped. This will get out there and racing will not be as popular as it was before. Profits, probably being the main drive behind doping, will go down as well. What will happen next, I don't know. Hopefully they will come to their senses and race with their hearts.

    All that certainly happened after Landis was stripped of his TDF win, and after TDF winners Patani, Riis and Ulrich were shown to have doped.

    Use some of your vulcan logic.
