The under-23 national champion said he took the drug thinking that it was a legal vitamin based on bad advice from a friend. "It was all part of a deception that was done to me," Lopez told Ciclo21. "A person advised me, but he did it very badly, and apparently gave me some vitamins, which I consumed without knowing what I was getting into. "I did not know that these supposed vitamins were a forbidden substance. It was not my intention to consume something forbidden."ADVERTISEMENT Colombian newspapers reported on Monday that the 20-year-old returned a positive test for the substance, also known as 'third generation' EPO, at the Vuelta a Colombia in August.

Lopez told Ciclo21 that he consumed the drug one month before the Vuelta...
