Seven people linked to Operation Puerto doping scandal in cycling would be finally stand trial in Spain, facing up to two years in prison.

More than 50 cyclists – including three-time Tour de France champion Alberto Contador, Ivan Basso, Jan Ullrich, and Alejandro Valverde – in the use of performance-enhancing substances or practices were implicated.

Valverde is the only rider from Spain who has been punished using Puerto evidence.
