Italian Fabrizio Guidi has been suspended by his Phonak team after testing positive in a drug test carried out by the International Cycling Union (UCI) at the end of July. Phonak announced details of the suspension following Wednesday's third stage of the Deutschland Tour.

"We have been informed by the UCI that an antidoping control that was carried out on Fabrizio Guidi has delivered a positive test. In accordance with the rules of the ProTour circuit, the rider has been suspended until the results of the B sample are delivered," a statement from the Phonak team explained.

Guidi, 33, joined Phonak this season and becomes the fourth rider on the team to test positive in little more than a year. Last year former world champion Oscar Camenzind admitted to EPO use and was sacked by the team, while Tyler Hamilton and Santiago Perez were found guilty of blood doping. Both were released from their contracts.
