Bakker positive for EPO

Dutch rider Erwin Bakker has tested positive for EPO at an out of competition control in Mont Sainte-Anne, Canada, in June. Bakker finished seventh in the race, but faces disqualification from the race and a possible two year suspension. He has already been sacked by his team, Heijdens-Ten Tusscher.

Last year, Belgian Filip Meirhaeghe also tested positive for EPO in Mont Sainte-Anne, again in an out of competition test.
