Wow. VeloNews. Lots to report today. BMC draws first blood (no pun intended) and suspends Swiss rider Thomas Frei after he tested positive for EPO. Read the story here. This is after they suspended 2 riders for being implicated in an ongoing doping investigation in Italy. Unfortunately, Alessandro Ballan, last year’s World Champ, is one of the riders who has been suspended. Things are not looking good for Lance Armstrong’s Radioshack team mate Fuyu Li. Fuyu is the first rider from China to ride for a ProTour team, and now he becomes the first one to receive a doping suspension, pending the analysis of his B-sample. Read his story here.
