Tour de France 2007: Iban Mayo tests positive for EPO, Vinokourov fired from Astana

The Tour isn’t quite over yet, at least in terms of the doping test results. El Pais reports that Iban Mayo (Saunier Duval – Prodir) tested positive for EPO in the 24th stage of the Tour de France.

Astana has fired Alexander Vinokourov from its cycling team. Vinokourov tested positive for blood “doping” (i.e. getting an infusion of someone else’s blood). The entire Astana team withdrew from the Tour when Vinokourov’s results became known.
