Valverde is rare in combining different specialities in road bicycle racing, being a strong climbing specialist, sprinter and a good time-trialist. After a lengthy court battle, he was suspended for two years as part of the Operación Puerto blood doping investigation, but he returned to competition in 2012 upon completion of the ban. Valverde has placed in the Top 10 of a Grand Tour seventeen times. He is the current UCI Cycling World Champion.
