Recently, new evidence linked Miguel Angel López to the case in which he was being investigated about the doping ring related to doctor Marcos Maynar. In an interview with ADN Cycling, the cyclist reported that his biological passport is intact, that he was innocent and that there is no connection between him and the analysis.
“It was [the initial suspension] just a bad moment that happened, a misunderstanding. I have nothing to regret because I’m not doped, my biological passport is clean”, said Miguel Angel López about the repercussions of the investigation.
Shortly after being named as one of the athletes under investigation, his former team Astana Qazaqstan decided to end his contract. The athlete comments on the case in the interview and on new perspectives on the new Medellín EPM team: “Something good after what happened, and sometimes you have to take a small step back to take a big leap forward”.
“It’s a new experience, I’m motivated, I’m looking forward to a new season with beautiful experiences. It’s a little different from what I expected [for 2023], but I’m sure I’ll feel the support of the fans here, this is the best team here in Colombia”, said Miguel Angel López.
