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..
