Locke down

Deon Michael Locke provisionally suspended
The UCI advised Australian rider Deon Michael Locke 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 Beijing indicating an Adverse Analytical Finding of Phentermine in a urine sample collected from him in an in competition test (Tour of Hainan) on 23 October 2011. 

The provisional suspension of Mr. Locke remains in force until a hearing panel convened by the Australian Cycling Federation determines whether he has committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules. 

Mr. Locke 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.
