Press release - Second Adverse Analytical Finding: David Garcia Da Pena provisionally suspended




The UCI advised Spanish rider David Garcia Da Pena 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 Madrid indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of EPO in a urine sample collected from him at an in-competition test at the Vuelta a España on 13 September 2010.

This Adverse Analytical Finding for EPO follows the Adverse Analytical Finding for Hydroxyethyl Starch in the urine sample collected on September 16th at the same race.

The provisional suspension of Mr Garcia Da Pena 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 Garcia Da Pena 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.
