Four riders snared by anti-doping this week | VeloNews.com

"Numerous reports on Tuesday named three riders who failed anti-doping tests at Tour de Guadeloupe, which took place July 29-August 7, 2016. Colombians José Flober Peña Peña, Giovanni Baez Alvarez, and José Daniel Bernal Garcia all tested positive for CERA, a type of EPO that was known as the drug of choice for such riders as Riccardo Ricco and Stefan Schumacher about 10 years ago. Peña, 43, won stage 4 of the 2016 Tour de Guadeloupe, but that result will be struck from the records. He and his two compatriots accepted four-year bans and will not appeal."

Shocked that a "suddenly-resurgent" cycling nation would have these issues with doping. With pro teams on the lookout for promising Columbian climbers, it's a huge temptation to dope for the results that will get you noticed.

I honestly hope they get this problem under control.
