Six people arrested during the Operation Puerto doping raids in 2006 will finally go to trial on January 28 in Madrid's Superior Court. The defendants include Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes and former head of Liberty Seguros team Manolo Saiz, both of whom are suspected of helping cyclists cheat using blood doping and anabolic steroids. The raids, in which police searched businesses and houses in Madrid and Zaragoza, implicated some 50 cyclists, including Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, both of whom are set to testify at the trial.
