The anabolic agents, presumably steroids, build and rebuild muscle, helping power and recovery – and the amphetamines are a pick-me-up that gets you going. Perfect for bike racing I guess. Unless you get caught.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced today that Juan Pablo Dotti, of Duluth, Georgia, has tested positive for a prohibited substance and has accepted a suspension for his doping violation.
The 27-year-old, a native of Argentina, tested positive for an anabolic agent and amphetamine on June 12, 2011 in the final stage of the three-day Tulsa Tough in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dotti, racing for the elite amateur Aerocat Cycling Team, finished second on the Riverview Criterium stage and placed sixth overall.
