You aren't very good at sarcasm, either.

EPO is also naturally produced by the body. So it's not like it's a foreign substance the body has no mechanisms to deal with it.

So it would be expected that the body will return excess levels to normal. And that actually happens fairly quick.

So now the news reports are that Lopez might go back to Astana, while Movistar picks up Aranburu and Izagirre. Also, Soler to UAE.

Seems like lose-lose for Lopez and Movistar. They are losing their most exciting young talent, and unless Astana rebuilds in a serious way, I don't think they can support a GC campaign with the same strength as Movistar.

^ indeed. Also the departure of 2nd sponsor Premier Tech from Astana, and the return of Vino from his short involuntary sabbatical in the wilderness. Astana is going to be a wacky Kazakhi place to be next year.

i like aranburu and his potential. moving to movistar essentially gives them valverde’s replacement. soler to uae gives them another serious support guy for tadej and a viable protected rider (besides brandon) for any weeklong tour or gt pogačar doesn’t ride.
