Keisse attended the testing of the sample, accompanied by his attorney and a scientific expert. "Everything there went according to the procedures," the 25-year-old told sporza.be. "The findings of the first analysis were confirmed."
Both he and his team, Topsport Vlaanderen, must now consider the next step. The team suspended Keisse after the first positive analysis. Team manager Christophe Sercu said that he would wait for the official report on the B sample, which he expected to receive shortly, before meeting with team lawyers to consider the next step. (SW)
