Another cyclist has been caught eating at the Mark McGwire café and another is blaming Mexican meat for testing positive for clenbuterol.
The Danish cycling federation Tuesday revealed that Philip Nielsen, 23 (right, exactly as shown), of the continental Concordia team, tested positive for clenbuterol during the 2010 Vuelta a Mexico.
Nielsen won stage 8 of the Mexican tour in April and both A and B samples have come back positive. His case now is making its way through the Danish disciplinary process.
Nielsen claims he was not doping, but did offer an excuse of how the banned product found its way into his system.
Italian Alessandro Colo also tested positive, but he claimed that his test was triggered by eating contaminated meat in Mexico.
The Nielsen case comes as Spanish officials consider what to do with Alberto
douchebag Contador (left), who is facing a two-year ban and disqualification of his Tour de France crown after he tested positive for the substance en route to winning last year’s Tour.
