The UCI advised Venezuelan rider Miguel Ubeto Aponte 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 KÃ¶ln indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of GW1516 sulfone â€“ Metabolic Modulator in a urine sample collected from him in an out of competition test on 16 April 2013.
The provisional suspension of Mr. Miguel Ubeto Aponte remains in force until a hearing panel convened by the Venezuelan Cycling Federation determines whether he has committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules.
Mr. Miguel Ubeto Aponte 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.
