Adverse Analytical Finding – SA XCO Champs [July 2013]

Cycling South Africa reports that Philip Jansen van Vuuren returned an adverse analytical finding in an in-competition test conducted by the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) on 20 July 2013.
The sample was collected at the South African Mountain Bike Cross-Country Championships held on 20 July 2013, and confirmed the presence of the Anabolic Agent Clenbuterol.

Philip is therefore provisionally suspended with immediate effect from competing in any event. The SAIDS process will now take its course.

Cycling South Africa respects the independence of the SAIDS process and will respect the outcome. Cycling South Africa further reiterates its zero-tolerance approach to doping in sport. Cyclists are encouraged to visit the SAIDS website (www.drugfreesport.org.za) to familiarise themselves with all the issues regarding anti-doping.

Kavandje, Sep 03 2013 01:25

Maybe it was the steaks in Spain ........

Stretch, Sep 03 2013 01:26

i dunno everyone competing in a SA event and riding with a full license is fair game in my book, regardless of if they are being lapped or not.....very different to a back marker in the epic

RudoJ, Sep 03 2013 01:31

Damn, its bad....oh well, if you dope, do it so well that you wont get caught, or leave it.
btw who wants some clen....

You don't get this stuff in a supplement. Deliberate cheating.

Sanction should be lifetime ban from any elite/licenced competition. After two years he can be back in the Open seeded with the rest of us.

Nooooo way dopers should be allowed back, anywhere.
Ok maybe he can drive the broom bus at the really long races...
