Thomas Frei - Positive Anti-Doping Test
BMC Racing Team: Statement Regarding Thomas Frei
President Jim Ochowicz:
"It has come to our attention that Thomas Frei has been informed that he was
tested A-positive regarding the use of EPO. As a consequence, the BMC Racing
Team and its members have made the decision to withhold Thomas Frei from
competition, in accordance with the BMC Racing Team's own policy. This should
not be seen as pre-determination of guilt. The rider will now have to personally
address the accusation."
Sadly this happens on the most successful day ever for BMC Racing Team with
World Champion, Cadel Evans winning the 74th Fleche Wallone besting Katusha's
Joaquím Rodriguez and Astana's Alberto Contador.
Thomas Frei is 25 years old Swiss rider, started his pro career with Astana
()2007 - 08) and signed with BMC in 2009 and was currently racing in the
34th Giro del
Trentino having finished 12th today on the Queens stage, and was in 5th
place on the G.C..
