Canadian Agreda confesses EPO use before before being ‘caught out’
What’s interesting is that this positive test – coming after the confession – was conducted at the Quebec Provincial RR champs. Not sure of the exact chronology here but there is increasing evidence of drug testers targeting likely offenders and turning up appropriately. I doubt they’ll make it down to a club crit but who knows? One day?
The Canadian Cycling Association (CCA) confirmed today that Miguel Agreda, who already confessed to taking the banned blood booster EPO, tested positive for the substance at the Québec Provincial Road Race Championships. He was given a two-year ban and is cut off from any future funding by Sport Canada.
