The climber, now suspended for a possible anti-doping rule violation, was subjected to an armed attack in the Boyacà area
In his career he was able to finish a great tour in the top 10 7 times: third places in the 2018 Giro and the Vuelta were his best results. Now Miguel Angel Lopez does not take part in races, as he was suspended before the World Championships for a possible violation of the anti-doping law (he was removed from Astana and found a place in the Medellin team). But despite himself, he was the protagonist of bad news: On Thursday, the 29-year-old Colombian was attacked by three criminals in front of his farm in Pesca in the Colombian department of Boyaca. He returned there with his wife: he was held captive for over three hours, during which his car, phone and a small sum of cash were stolen.
