Press release - Manuel Vazquez Hueso provisionally suspended




Earlier today, the UCI advised Spanish rider Manuel Vazquez Hueso 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 Barcelona indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of EPO in a urine sample collected from him in an out of competition test on 20 March 2010.

This targeted test was carried out on the basis of information contained in the rider’s biological passport.

The provisional suspension of Mr Vazquez Hueso remains in force until a hearing panel convened by the Spanish Cycling Federation determines whether he has committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules.

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

Under the World Anti-Doping Code and the UCI Anti-Doping Rules, the UCI is unable to provide any additional information at this time.
