The UCI Anti-Doping Rules do not provide for a provisional suspension given the nature of the substance, which is a specified substance,” read the UCI’s release.


So, is he banned, or not?

That will be an interesting tale.

He only just made it before the rest day doping story cut off.

He will be politely asked to leave the race.

I think he should probably ask his supplier for a refund. Perhaps he took the masking agent but forgot to take the actual PEDs? ;)

I was going to ask where's this year's positive test result!

So disappointed! If he'd been great and this happened you wouldn't be so surprised. But now I just think the peloton is as bad as ever.

Bad times...

Don't let Frank Schleck, who is known to have previously paid large money to a doping doctor, affect your faith in other riders. It's no different than Ricco getting caught again.

Why does he need to take a diuretic? People have been taking the p1ss out of him all year.
