What's the issue with Betsema, b&b? I don't follow the women so much.

Steroid doping. She tested positive in two different races in 2019, but ultimately received a very short retroactive ban, so didn't miss any racing and was immediately rehired by her team. Usual tainted supplement excuses, although I think things got changed after Contador, so that for cases contaminated products cases, UCI rules allow for variable punishment "depending on the Rider’s degree of Fault" (10.5.1.2).
