Adverse analytical finding in recent mountain bike stage race

Cycling SA received notification from the UCI (International Cycling Union) of an adverse analytical finding from a sample provided by Barry Warmback on 18 March 2013 at the Absa Cape Epic.
The analytical report confirmed the presence of the steroid, Stanozolol in his sample. Barry is therefore provisionally suspended with immediate effect from competing in any event. The SAIDS (South African Institute of Drug-free Sport) process will now take its course.

Cycling SA reiterates its zero-tolerance approach to doping in sport and will continue working with the UCI and SAIDS in the promotion of a drug-free sport via its awareness programmes and extensive testing.

Wow, this is Crazy, I went to school with this Guy, and he is a "Average middle to back of the Field" Rider, Must have been a random test at Epic (cos he def wasnt competing for places).... Also saw him at Sani race last week and he was closer to the back of the field than the middle.... Need to keep an eye on this one...

He could have used a steroid for medical reasons and not known.Why was he tested if he races mid pack?

What an idiot. It's bad enough when podium contenders think they can get away with it, now the backmarkers are doing the same. It's pathetic.

No way, damnit Barry, been telling you for years to get off the juice - what's wrong with you??

Think its quite harsh to lable him an "Idiot" off the Bat Falco, as Said somewhere above, this Stanozolol could have come from bioplus or a decongestive nasal spray or anything... Im sure he was not purposely trying to cheat from the back of the field....

Let's face it as a non-Pro fun rider we all use medication for flu and coughs and injuries.I have never worried as i don't race for prize money,i do it for fun.
Never ever crossed my mind that i could be tested.
What will happen to him now?

Eldron, May 23 2013 09:57

Ah that is some funny shyte right there.

Random testing in non pro events is just a waste of time, money and resources.

Test the winners and leave the random tests to races with only pros I say.

Stanozolol, commonly sold under the name Winstrol (oral) and Winstrol Depot (intramuscular), is a synthetic anabolic steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone. It was developed by Winthrop Laboratories (Sterling Drug) in 1962, and has been approved by the FDA for human use.
Unlike most injectable anabolic steroids, stanozolol is not esterified and is sold as an aqueous suspension, or in oral tablet form. The drug has a high oral bioavailability, due to a C17 a-alkylation which allows the hormone to survive first-pass liver metabolism when ingested. It is because of this that stanozolol is also sold in tablet form.
Stanozolol has been used in both animal and human patients for a number of conditions. In humans, it has been demonstrated to be successful in treating anaemia and hereditary angioedema. Veterinarians may prescribe the drug to improve muscle growth, red blood cell production, increase bone density and stimulate the appetite of debilitated or weakened animals.

LIKE I SAID BIOPLUS :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

This is really a bit silly but is actually a big problem for the dude. The problem is that when you sign up to do the Epic you agree to the rules which include no use of banned sporting substances. Most of us take whatever the Doc prescribes for us without thinking, I suppose he should have told the doc or pharmacist that he was partaking in the Epic and that he needs a TUE or an alternative. Crazy days!

From Cape Epic website

Ride It | Anti-Doping

The Absa Cape Epic conforms to the World Anti-Doping Code as laid out by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and works with the UCI and the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport to ensure the Code is properly implemented at the race and amongst cyclists in South Africa. Stringent and comprehensive doping control is conducted at the race by the UCI and the Institute.


Any athlete (professional or amateur) sanctioned by their federation or national anti-doping authority (NADA) for use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) after 1 January 2013, whether at another event or out of competition, will be banned for life from participating in the Absa Cape Epic. Not only will the person not be allowed to participate (as an amateur rider or UCI- licensed elite), but the individual will also be banned from being involved on any level including as a team manager.

As is stipulated in the race rules, the organisers reserve the right to test all participants and therefore, per the WADA Code, the onus is on the athlete to check that any substances or methods used do not appear on WADA's current List of Prohibited Substances and Methods.
