Bouyges Telecom's Unai Yus suspended by his team after substances found in his room; Aitor Osa and E
PIC BY TDWSPORT.com - Upholding the team's policy of zero-tolerance, Bouygues Telecom boss Jean-Rene Bernaudeau has suspended their rider Unai Yus following the discovery of products in his possession not on the team's official medicine list. The 31-year-old Yus was riding the Tour of Spain, but was a non-starter on Monday's 10th stage after the find. "He has therefore been suspended pending analysis of these products," Bernaudeau said. - Aitor Osa (Illes Balears) and Credit Agricole's Eric Leblacher were both victims of collar-bone breaks during Monday's 10th stage of the Tour of Spain. Leblacher fell early on, breaking the same collar bone as during March's Paris-Camembert, while Osa, a member of the day's breakaway group, fell when he overcooked a bend on the descent of the Collet de Montaup. Despite remounting, Osa was in too much pain, and was forced to quit the race in tears.
