That is what Valjavec did, and he got cleared by Slovenian antidoping agency, but uci appealed and won...IMO he was a neccesary victim to justify biopassport

OPQS scheme is nice, but the Astana looks like the type of paint scheme reserved for low end bikes when they've run out of better ideas

When you send a mail out to the media, it hitting social media isn't exactly a leak.

The Astana scheme looks like Speci trying to out Trek a Trek.
Also, why do the two teams have to have such similar color schemes?

True, but a leak is still a leak regardless of who gives out the info. It was still way earlier in this process than we would normal hear about such cases
