UCI Provisionally suspends Pawel and Kacper Szczepaniak
 
These adverse findings were a direct result of a targeted urine test conducted after the Under-23 race in which P. and K. Szczepaniak finished respectively first and second.

The blood samples collected before the event from P. and K. Szczepaniak had already shown, within the biological passport programme, that the blood profiles of these two riders were suspect.

The provisional suspensions remain in force until a hearing panel convened by the Polish Cycling Federation determines whether Mssrs P. and K. Szczepaniak have committed an anti-doping rule violation under Article 21 of the UCI Anti-Doping Rules. Mssrs P. and K. Szczepaniak have the right to request and attend the analyses of their B samples.

Under the World Anti-Doping Code and the UCI Anti-Doping Rules, the UCI is unable to provide any additional information at this time.
