Opinion Court : ODM house Keeping.

Alexandre Vinokourov won gold in the London 2012 Olympic road race . The prosecutor's office in Liege confirmed both riders have been charged with corruption, but revealed the case would not reach court until the beginning of 2015 at the earliest.

Their lawyers have two weeks to provide evidence that would avoid a trial or go to court later this year.

Vinokourov is alleged to have agreed to pay Kolobnev 150,000 euros to let him win the race.

The case is based on email exchanges between the riders as well as two payments of 100,000 euros and 50,000 euros made in July and December of that year.

Both have denied the accusations after the case first came to light when Swiss and Italian media uncovered the matter and the International Cycling Union took action.

Vinokourov won the Tour of Spain in 2006, was third in the Tour de France in 2003 and was banned for a year for blood doping in 2007.

Dutchman Tom Dumoulin, of Sunweb, finished close behind in the race leader's pink jersey to maintain his 2min 23sec lead over race favourite and 2014 champion Nairo Quintana (Movistar).
