Catalan regional police Mossos d'Esquadra, working alongside national police, say in a statement it "dismantled a criminal network" that had provided performance-enhancing drugs such as EPO to athletes who had tested positive at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2010 Spanish Vuelta a Espana, among other competitions.

The Mossos d'Esquadra says the ringleader is "Doctor Alberto BN" - reported to be former Team Liberty Seguros doctor Alberto Beltran Nino.
