During the 2004 Tour de France the UCI were discussing whether Padrnos and Stefano Zanini of Quick-Step–Davitamon would be allowed to continue the Tour. This was because both riders had been called to appear in a case relating to doping at the 2001 Giro d'Italia. The UCI decided to let the riders continue.[2]
