Astana studies the case and will make the decision soon.

The Colombian cyclist Miguel Ángel López could compete in the Tour of Burgos, after the Astana team analyzed the legal case, in which the boyacense committed himself.

López was requested two weeks ago by the police for a control at the airport of Madrid, after arriving from Colombia.

What is missing for it to compete?

It was noted that López's suitcase was seized, but the authorities did not find anything strange, so he continued on his way.

During those days it was noted that the name of the cyclist does appear in the case that is being investigated by court number 4 of Cáceres for drug traffickingand in which the professor of the University of Extremadura Marcos Maynar, who years ago was accused of administering doping substances to athletes.

Once the news broke, the Astana team suspended the Colombian runner until further notice, until his situation was clarified.

This Sunday, it seems, a door was opened for López to have the opportunity to return to the competition in the Vuelta a Burgos, which starts on Tuesday.

“That hasn't been decided yet, but there is a chance it will be”, Giuseppe Martinelli, one of the sports directors of the Kazakh squad, told EL TIEMPO.

“Between today and tomorrow the decision will be made. What we hope is that Alexander Vinokurov, the team's manager, analyzes the issue and gives us the endorsement”, said the DT.

Despite the inconvenience, López continued training, he did not miss any days and that is why he has the level to return to racing.

Similarly, there is the possibility that 'Supermán' López will be part of Astana in the Vuelta a España, which starts on August 19.
