After learning that Astana Qazaqstan terminated his contract with Miguel Ángel López for his alleged links to a doping network, the Colombian cyclist has responded by reiterating his innocence in the case and announcing that he will take legal action against his former team for what was a dismissal “unjustified and abusive”
A few hours ago, the Kazakh team announced the termination of the relationship with López after discovering new elements that linked the cyclist with the doping network of Dr. Maynar. This decision has not gone down well with the Boyacá athlete, who, by denying a link with the network, considers that it was an incorrect determination.
Today the decision of the Astana Qazaqstan team to terminate the contract that linked the cyclist Miguel Ángel López to it, a contract that had been renewed in November 2022 for the 2023 season, has been publicly communicated.
The cyclist Miguel Ángel López considers this decision absolutely unjustified, there being no new fact that justifies it and that was unknown in November 2022 by the Astana team, rejecting any insinuation that harms his name and honor as a professional cyclist, and remembering that never During his career, he has never tested positive for any substance or part or has even been the object of investigation by the competent authorities.
Mr. Miguel Ángel López informs that he will exercise all the legal actions that assist him in defense of his rights, given what he understands to be a clear case of abusive dismissal and without just cause.
