As reported Ciclo21, Jose Manuel Moreno Moreno, one of the sub-23, elite and later most famous masters in the Spanish calendar during the last two decades, has been sanctioned with eight years by AEPSAD, the Spanish Agency for the protection of Health in Sports.
This sanction was not for having tested positive for prohibited substances, but for the promotion, incitement, contribution, instigation or facilitation of the conditions for the use of prohibited substances or methods ”.
Therefore, article 22. 1 of Organic Law 3/2013, of June 20, on the protection of the athlete's health and the fight against doping in sports activity has been violated.
During his competitive time he gave 3 positives
The former Kelme under-23 rider, Paternina elite and Orquín master in his last competitive period, added three positives in different seasons.
It did not have a permanent sanction since the rule of repetition of sanctions was not in force.
The Valencian -which became model of an advertisement for the Tour of Spain dressed in a golden jumpsuit - he no longer competed - he has won countless races and laps of master's degrees - and he worked in a company in the La Safor region where he was allegedly arrested by the Civil Guard last year.
Subsequently, a search was made at his home where, apparently, prohibited substances and cash from the sales of these products were seized, according to sources consulted by this means.
Months after the events and the investigation, AEPSAD, aware of the investigation, has sanctioned it until May 31, 2028, being the Spanish athlete who will be without a license for the longest time.
2 more positives in Master
In addition, the Andalusian masters have been sanctioned Juan Jose Mata Astorga y Norberto Fernandez Clavijo after two positive without specifying substances.
