Four years of retroactive sanctions against Robert Stannard


The Australian cyclist Robert Stannard He received a four-year doping sanction retroactive to 2018 because of anomaly in his biological passport.

The former cyclist Alpecin-Deceuninck He was provisionally suspended by cycling’s world governing body (UCI) last year and removed from the Australian road racing team for the world championships in Glasgow. Stannard denied any wrongdoing when his temporary suspension was made public.

The UCI Anti-Doping Tribunal found that Stannard committed an anti-doping rule violation by using a “prohibited substance or prohibited method.” However, the court decided that the suspension period should begin on August 17, 2018, the day the first anomaly appeared. The decision takes into account the delay in which the runner’s anomalies were reported to the UCI, according to the statement.

Stannard, who won the Belgian Tour of Wallonia in 2022, is currently without a team after his contract with Alpecin-Deceuninck expired last year, but is free to return to racing with immediate effect. The 25-year-old cyclist was also fined 70% of his salary in 2018 and 2019.
