Moises Duenas of Barloworld has tested positive for EPO after the stage 4 TT. Police took him in for questioning at the team hotel in Tarbes wednesday morning. Barloworld have pulled him from the race but the rest of the team will stay in the race. Duenas, formerly of Agritubel rode well on the Hautacam stage and stayed with the lead group for a long time.He was placed 19 in the CG some 6 minutes behind Evans. Guess we know why now.
Update from Gavia: A search of his hotel room revealed that Dueñas had "significant quantities" of medicines in his room, for which he had no perscription. Dueñas is currently being held for questioning by French authorities, and is expected to be released sometime tomorrow morning. He is now suspended from Team Barloworld, pending further investigation.
