The Operación Puerto doping case (meaning Operation Mountain pass)[1] is a doping investigation in Spain. It started in May of 2006.

Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes is accused of giving banned doping drugs to 200 professional athletes.

Fuentes doped a lot of well known tennis and football stars[2] but most attention was on the fairly small number of professional road cyclists that were named in the investigation.[3]

By May 2007, fifteen have been proved not guilty, but three have admitted doping or have had very much evidence of blood doping placed before them.[4][5]
