TJD-AD 2019-165 Disciplinary Decision - Cycling

In April 2018 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the cyclist after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Erythropoietin (EPO). After notification the Athlete admitted the violation, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by ABCD.

Hereafter the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) established that the Athlete had breached the accepted provisional suspension through his participation into a competition on 6 May 2018.

The Rapporteur finds that the presence of a prohibited substance has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation.

In view of the evidence the Rapporteur concludes that the Athlete during the accepted provisional suspension had participated in a competition of a non-signatory organisation. As a result the Athlete violated the terms of the Acceptance of Consequences he had signed, whereas the agreement between the cyclist and ABCD had not been approved yet by the TJD-AD. Further the Rapporteur considers that there had been delays in the proceeding not attributed to the Athlete.

Therefore the TJD-AD Panel decides on 25 February 2019 to impose a 90 month period of ineligibility on the Athlete for the 2 violations, starting backdated on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 26 November 2017.
