Interesting. I wonder how that will affect Andy.

Less twisting of the spine. :P

Let's see who appeals the ban length first...

How do they come up with that number? 12 months?.. UCI or Wada will appeal I'm sure.

Don't think it will affect Andy much. Andy has of course been in knowing of anything Frank's been doing the whole time. They literally live in the same bedroom.

That's why it's incredible willpower of Andy that he did not get carried away and did the same as his brother ... :roll:

Is it backdated or from today? Any idea when he will ride in competition again?

Edit: apparently he can ride again from middle of July

Backdated. Which is fair enough as he has been suspended from racing since the positive. He'll be eligible in mid July.

So, Andy and Frank start racing almost on the same day. :P

YES! Franky's going to pop up halfway up Ventoux and give Andy his wheel :)

I think it's obviously that what one brother does the other does too so this reflects bad on both of them.

i thought you only got a reduced ban if you co-ooperated. The strict liability rule means it doesn't matter how the stuff got that just that it was there. As he hasn't named any dealers or helped then surely he can't get a reduced sentence.

That was my understanding. Possible that the length of ban could be appealed by WADA?

I think this has all the hall marks of an old failing rider trying anything to get one more decent contract for next year than anything more permanant.

Lets not forget that Bruneyl kept them apart for much of last year

What a joke! A back dated ban and he hardly misses too much racing. It was a masking agent so the liklihood is he is up to other supplements as well. Good chance to show they are intent on cleaning up cycling and they bottle it at the first opportunity

once again this shows the stupidity of having national federations investigate their own athletes. They can't be bothered to look into it properly and will accept any excuse given
