ORICA-GreenEDGE has received confirmation that Daryl Impey is fully eligible to ride after being cleared of all doping allegations. The South African had tested positive for the banned substance Probenecid but was cleared of wong-doing by a tribunal in Johannesburg after a pharmacist admiited the diuretic Impey had purchased had been contaminated.

We are extremely happy with the fact that Daryl has been 100% cleared to race and we all look forward to having him back riding for us. Daryl is a key rider for the team and we very pleased with how he has handled his case and the process around it. We will reinstate Daryl in our racing roster as soon as possible, general manager Shayne Bannan said.

Im thrilled to have been given the notification that Im 100% OK to race again and no sanction whatsoever will be applied. I was confident in my defense and Im thankful that I was given the chance clear my name beyond any type of doubt. Its been a tough period to get through, but Id like to thank my team for giving me the possibility to focus solely on getting this process done properly. All I can think of now is that I get to join my team and race my bike again as soon as possible, said Impey.
