The Belgian cycling federation's disciplinary commission has sanctioned former cyclo-crosser Mario de Clercq for four years, two of which are suspended. The federation has also fined him €6,500. De Clercq was one of the four professional riders named in the José Landuyt doping affair, and has suffered the same fate as Johan Museeuw, Chris Peers and Jo Planckaert. Although he has stopped as a cyclist, he still may lose his current job at a cycling school in Ronse because of the suspension.
