Stefan Schumacher said that he was "stunned" to hear from the International Cycling Union that it had confirmed his two-year suspension on doping charges.
Schumacher said that the UCI issued its decision "without checking the documents. Without explaining the irregularities. Without a hearing. And without listening to me at all." The 27-year-old said that he would appeal this "scandal" to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
In a statement published on his website, stefan-schumacher.com, he continued to insist, "I did not dope and I have nothing to hide."
To support his claims, he published a number of documents from the AFLD on his website, including two which refer to him as "Michael" Schumacher. The cyclist is not related to the former Formula One champion.
