release by the UCI

UCI-good-logo.2December 19, 2013 – The UCI announced yesterday that former Time Trial World Champion and Olympic medalist Michael Rogers has been provisionally suspended due to a positive finding for the banned substance clenbuterol, the same substance that saw Alberto Contador stripped of his 2010 TdF title after a highly publicized and drawn-out case. The UCI also announced the provisional suspension of Belgian rider Jonathan Breyne due to a positive test, also for clenbuterol.

The UCI advised Australian rider Michael Rogers that he is provisionally suspended. The decision to provisionally suspend this rider was made in response to a report from the WADA-accredited laboratory in Tokyo indicating an adverse analytical finding of clenbuterol in a urine sample collected from him in a test during the Japan Cup Cycle Road Race on 20 October 2013.

The provisional suspension of Mr. Michael Rogers remains in force until a hearing panel convened by his national federation determines whether he has committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules.

Mr. Rogers has the right to request and attend the analysis of his B sample.
