Bernhard Kohl has asked the French Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD) to test the B samples of his positive controls for CERA, the Austrian Cycling Federation (ÖRV) announced Tuesday.
After Kohl's manager, Stefan Matschiner, said that the Austrian would make this request, the ÖRV announced that Kohl had done so. "Should these also be positive, then we will move against him as hard as possible," said ÖRV President Otto Flum.
Flum added that he had talked to Kohl "and advised him to lay his cards on the table and name the people in the background. Now it is up to him, how he and his manager plan to go from here." (SW)
