Very Important!

Any rider who should fail an anti-doping test (or being excluded from the Vuelta because of doping-related reasons, just like it happened in the 2002 Giro d'Italia) DURING the race will immediately LOSE ALL of his POINTS in the Riders Ranking.(His TRADE Team will not be punished in the Trade Teams Classification though). This sanction wouldn't apply to riders disqualified due to disciplinary reasons, like Francesco Casagrande in the same 2002 Tour of Italy.
