I never thought I'd have respect for a Torri.

    Seems suspicious. I'd ground them and subject their blood to every single test science can offer, raid their hotels, raid their houses, get their dogs names...whatever it takes...there's no way a DS should be unccoperative and.... away after 11pm when they did a 210km training session, plus evasive? Ground the team.

    So they were tested after being found in a different restaurant that "might" provide extra entertainment that they don't to be made public. That's the bit the media wants.
    They are not in Mexico are they.??

    Now if it was athletics and she missed 3 tests.....uummmmm!!!!!

    From CyclingNews 31/Jan:
    The CONI in fact does not have any limitations to carrying out its anti-doping tests, contrary to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), whose regulations foresee the controls to take place between 7am and 10pm

    Italians coming back from a restaurant past 11pm is suspicious? That's an early dinner in Italy! If there is a whereabouts problem, log it as such, but grounding the team because they went to the restaurant? How crazy is this going to get? The "riders face a three-year ban" only if they line up three missed tests from one same ADA, as we all learned last July. The tests were done, and unless they come back positive, there is no real story here. Ground the team... :roll:

    Could be perfectly innocent - but seems that they were still unavailable for their tests before 10pm ? The entire team ?

    Its only natural that suspicions are aroused - the whole sport has been riddled with dopers for years. :-(
