LottoNL-Jumbo's Antwan Tolhoek and Pascal Eenkhoorn are back training with the team although their suspension is not over yet.

Last December, the two riders along with Spaniard Juan Jose Lobato were caught using unprescribed sleeping medication during the training camp in Girona, Spain. While Lobato was fired on the spot, the other two were given a two-month suspension.

Even though Tolhoek and Eenkhoorn were to be excluded from all the team activities, including the presentation and training camps, both are in Spain, and back in the saddle. "The suspension has not been lifted, on the contrary," said LottoNL-Jumbo's press officer Ard Bierens to Dutch broadcaster NOS. "See this as part of the reintegration process."

The duo is reportedly keeping away from the rest of the team, including eating away from the others and not participating in group activities. "We want to prevent that when the suspension is over they will be back with the team and things have not been properly discussed between them," Bierens added.
