Hard (sic) evidence on Valverde.

The UCI bolstered by a new hero of Spain sought to remove the old Spanish hero from the Worlds.  The UCI spelled out all the evidence it has against the “Green Bullet”

“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,”

Several documents out of 6000 may show?  That’ll stand up.  I guess the new phrase is a slight variation of the “Innocent until proven guilty” phrase we like to use here in the US.  I guess the mantra is:

“Innocent until we think that there is a chance that you may have done something at some point that we would not agree with today.”
