Puerto affair: the UCI seeks disciplinary proceedings against Alejandro Valverde

During the meticulous studying of the 6,000-page Puerto dossier, the International Cycling Union (UCI) has concluded that several documents may show the involvement of Alejandro Valverde in the affair.

In accordance with its regulations, the UCI has requested the Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC) to open disciplinary proceedings against the rider as soon as possible.

These proceedings would not imply any guilt on the part of Alejandro Valverde. However, according to UCI regulations, and to safeguard the atmosphere and reputation of the World Championships, Alejandro Valverde will be prevented from participating in the forthcoming UCI Road World Championships in Stuttgart.

If, at the end of the disciplinary procedure, the Spanish rider's involvement in the Puerto affair is confirmed and he receives at least a two-year suspension, then as a signatory of the "Riders' Commitment to a New Cycling", he would be obliged to pay the UCI a contribution to the anti-doping campaign of a sum equal to his annual salary for 2007, in addition to any regulatory fines.
