Li of RadioShack Suspended for use of Performance Enhancers
RadioShack’s Fuyu Li was suspended due to testing positive for using Clenbuterol. The A-sample testing happened in Belgium at the Dwars dor Vlaanderen last March 23. When the results returned positive for the banned substance, Team RadioShack immediately took action and suspended the Chinese rider.
The press release over the incident stresses the team’s advocacy to no doping:
“Team RadioShack and its management take this incident very seriously. We will respect the rights of our rider but will enforce our zero tolerance policy should his B-sample test positive.”
Li also took a B-sample testing and should it prove to be positive, he will be removed from RadioShack.
Fuyu Li currently holds the title of being the first professional Chinese to join a ProTour team. His career highlights included holding the current Chinese individual time trial champion (2009), he won the Tour of Thailand in 2006, he was the Chinese national mountain bike cross country champion in 2003 and he joined Discovery Channel Pro Cycling team in 2007.
