Two cyclists deny Fuentes help



Two Spanish cyclists have denied receiving blood transfusions to boost performance from Eufemiano Fuentes, the doctor at the centre of the Operation Puerto trial.

Cyclist Angel Vicioso testified that he had only met with Fuentes for "sporadic medical consultations."

Also, former cyclist Marcos Serrano contradicted testimony from former team director Manolo Saiz, one of five defendants along with Fuentes, by saying he never personally sought out medical treatment from Fuentes.

Vicioso and Serrano appeared as witnesses. At the time of the police investigations in 2006 doping was not illegal in Spain.

The five defendants face charges on endangering the health of the cyclists they allegedly helped dope.
