West receives one-month suspension

Written by  on Thursday, 01 November 2012 21:20

Following FIM anti-doping controls carried out during the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix meeting held in Le Mans, France, one of the samples was found not in accordance with the FIM Anti-Doping Code.

The sample of Australian Moto2 class rider Anthony West contained Methylhexaneamine, a substance included in ‘S.6b Specified Stimulants’ prohibited in competition, and thereby infringed Art 2.1 of the 2012 FIM Anti-Doping Code.

Following the hearing of the rider, the CDI decided to disqualify West from the French round of the 2012 FIM Moto2 World Championship, held on May 20 in Le Mans. In addition, the CDI imposes on the rider a sanction of one month’s period of ineligibility to compete in any meeting authorized or organized by the FIM or any FIM-affiliated federation or body or in any competitions authorized or organized by any international or national level meeting organization, from Oct. 30.

An appeal may be lodged with the International Tribunal of Appeal (TIA) within five day as from the notification of the decision.
