DopingEdit

Valentin tested positive for Heptaminol on 6 June 2006. The UCI summary of 'Decisions on Anti-Doping Rule Violations made in 2006' states "disqualification and ineligibility for 6 months".[1] However, the positive result was blamed on a medicine that the team doctor prescribed for varicose veins.[2]
