Sounds like he was getting desperate from that short web story.

My irony-meter just exploded.

His coach is that Vayer cat who likes to do analysis during the Tour and identify dopers through flawed power calculations.

Talk about irony-meter, Vincent Lavenu (who was out for a bike ride with Vino, Ullrich and Virenque at the weekend) the manager at AG2R said;
“I want to reiterate our commitment to the biological passport and to the values upheld by the International Cycling Union,” the Frenchman added. “We have full confidence in the competent authorities in their fight against doping.”

That first link calls it an 'Adverse Analytical Finding for EPO', this one refers to it as a 'non-negative sample'

Non-negative == positive ??

It's non-negative for now. It's positive when the B-sample confirms it, or he waives his right to have the b-sample tested.
