Toni Colom Asks for Doping Suspension to be Dropped
Spaniard Toni Colom has asked that the Spanish Cycling Federation drop his temporary doping suspension, and says that there are just too many errors in the case. His provisional suspension came via the UCI back in June, after he tested positive for EPO in April. His blood profile and race schedule are key components in Colom’s suspension. Spanish newspaper Diario de Mallorca reports that Colom and his attorney have filed a 50-page appeal. Colom maintains his innocence, and says that the case is “riddled with flaws,” saying that it’s a “disaster.” He has asked the Real Federacion Española to issue him a license for 2010, as well as to give him financial acquittal.
