Kelme to lose Giro spot as well as Tour place?

Procycling | Kelme's Giro and Tour places under threat

According to this story on Procycling.com:

Giro organisers RCS Sport stated yesterday they are following the affair closely and admitted Kelme’s participation in their event is under discussion. [Tour de France director Jean-Marie] Leblanc, meanwhile, has said Manzano’s comments are unproven for the moment and that he will only act if it is shown there has been systematic doping taking place within the Kelme team.

With Alejandro Valverde's victories already this season, it looked like the deal with Comunidad Valenciana would save the Kelme team, but missing 2 of the 3 major tours would seem to be a death blow.
