EColombian climber Miguel Angel “Superman” He hopes that the UCI will lift his provisional sentence after the court of Arbitration for Sport established that there is no evidence linking him to the use of banned substances in 2022 Giro d’italia.

“The ICC’s decision was confirmed to Miguel Angel, the lawyer who has the case. He received the information recently and it was clear that there was nothing,” Rafael Acevedo, one of the first technicians of the “Superman” lippez, told EFE on Friday.

Thus, Acevedo explained, the Astana team should pay the Colombian climber the salaries that it owes him since it stopped him allegedly in connection with the Ilex operation for smuggling banned drugs.

“Since they didn’t prove anything to him, what follows now is that the UCI lifts the unjust punishment imposed on him and he can start running again, which is what he wants more,”said Acevedo, who is also the sprinter’s father-in-law, who is currently training in the United States.

“Miguel Angel is in the United States. “He’s all been trained because his desire is to race again, which we hope will be soon,”Acevedo said.

On the other hand, the Medellin team, whose ‘Superman’ raced part of last year and won the Vuelta a San Juan and then swept the Vuelta a Colombia in which he took the title and nine stages, expresses its happiness with the decision of CAS and highlights the transparency of the rider.

“International control agencies give you the reason. To keep pedaling so strongly that all this time you have shown patience, length, optimism, transparency and courage to take this situation, ” the Medellin team stated in its tenth account.

The 30-year-old climber born in the town of Pasca, in the province of boyac, has not competed since July 2023, having been suspended for alleged involvement in operation Ilex, where violations of anti-doping rules and possession of banned substances are being investigated.
