Perez 2-year ban upheld
Procycling reports that the "Spanish Committee for Sporting Discipline" (i.e. the Spanish Inquisition, sports division) turned down Santiago Perez, who had asked that his 2-year ban be suspended until the "viability of the blood doping test has been confirmed."
Perez' ex-teammate, Tyler Hamilton, is awaiting results of a hearing before the US Anti-Doping Agency, where he and his attorney made the case against that test. Both Hamilton and Perez tested positive at the 2004 Vuelta a España, and Perez was sentenced to a 2-year suspension last week.
