The 2013 Vuelta A Espana had no positive anti-doping test results, it was announced today by the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation, in Aigle (Switzerland). The CADF took a total of 598 blood and urine samples. 200 samples were pre-competition testing while a further 398 samples were taken during the race.
The sport has had to clean up it’s image in recent years after the shaming anouncement by Lance Armstrong of his use of illegal sport enhancing drugs. He being not alone in the anti doping list. But this is a clear sign that not all condone the use of doping in our sport. I hope we see more clean sheets in 2014…!
