Capelle cleared

Belgian rider Ludovic Capelle has been cleared of using EPO by the Disciplinary Council of the Flemish Community on Tuesday. Capelle tested positive for the substance at a race in Gullegem in June last year, and was given an 18 month suspension. However, he appealed to the State Court, which overturned the decision on the basis of procedural errors: On the sign in sheet in Gullegem, it was stated that the riders would be tested randomly, which didn't happen.

Capelle can now race again, although he does not have a team.
