Barredo was suspended by Rabobank on 18 October 2012 after the UCI opened proceedings for apparent violations of the Anti-Doping Rules on the basis of the information provided by the blood profile in his biological passport.[2] In December of that year, he told Spanish newspaper El Pais that he was retiring from cycling and that he was starting a new job in a café in Madrid.[3] UCI gave him a two-year sanction as a result of abnormalities in his biological passport, and he was disqualified from 26 October 2007 to 24 September 2011.[4]
