Anti-Doping Rule Violation: Tyronne White

Cycling South Africa reports that Tyronne White has been found guilty of an anti-doping rule violation after an in-competition test conducted on 30 April 2016 confirmed the presence of the Glucocorticoid, Dexamethasone.

The SAIDS Independent Doping Hearing Panel imposed a period of ineligibility of 18 months, commencing on 14 December 2016. Mr. White is therefore suspended and prohibited from competing and administering in the sport of Cycling as well as in any other sport in South Africa and Internationally from 14 December 2016 until 13 June 2018. This decision may be appealed by Mr. White, the UCI, WADA and SAIDS.

 

Cycling South Africa respects the independence of the SAIDS process and will respect the outcome. Cycling SA further reiterates its zero-tolerance approach to doping in sport and will continue working with SAIDS in the promotion of a drug-free sport via its awareness and extensive testing programmes.

Apart from the fact he got caught doped but his friends all jumped to his defence and said it's not in his nature to dope?

Was this suspension overturned?  Because in the article it says Tyronne White was suspended between 14 December 2016 and 13 June 2018, yet he came 4th at the 2017 Mandela Day MTB Dash (26th August 2017):

And he won the 2018 Howick MTB Classic (4 March 2018):

These are only the two events I know of, there are probably others that he did.

 

I'm sure both these events are CSA affiliated, so it's not like Kevin Evans doing K2C; although Kevin did get an extra month added to his suspension once it was discovered.

He raced pretty much every single Roag series Race in KZN last year.

Edit: He only raced one race in 2017.
