Anti-doping officials are circling as a Spanish judge prepares to rule on whether Dr Eufemiano Fuentes' client list can be made public.
Dwain Chambers could soon be cleared to compete at London 2012 with his ban for doping reportedly set to be overturned.
Tour de France stars Alberto Contador, Alejandro Valverde and Ivan Basso are among the 58 former clients of Dr Eufemiano Fuentes listed in the investigation into the 'Operation Puerto' doping scandal.

Dr Eufemiano Fuentes, who stands accused of masterminding one of sport's largest doping rings, faced intense media interest as he arrived at a court in Madrid this morning ahead of his trial.
Hearings have begun this morning in the trial of Spanish doctor Dr Eufemiano Fuentes, who stands accused of masterminding one of sport's largest doping rings.
Dr Fuentes, who arrived amid a media scrum at the Madrid court, is accused of doctoring the blood of more than 50 professional cyclists. He is charged with breaking public health laws as Spain lacked anti-doping laws at the time of the 2006 raid on his laboratories.
Former Tour de France champion Alberto Contador is among the many cyclists expected to testify as witnesses in the trial, which is expected to run for two months.
