CAS sets dates for cycling hearings

The Court of Arbitration for Sport announced on Friday that it has scheduled hearings in two further cases involving cyclists, Aketza Peña and Matthias Kessler.

Peña's case is scheduled to be heard on July 3. He tested positive for Nandrolene in April 2007 and was suspended until August 9, 2009. Kessler tested positive for testosterone in April 2007, and was suspended for two years by the Swiss Cycling Federation. His hearing is scheduled for July 23.

The Court currently has two other cycling cases pending. It is expected to announce its decision this month on the Floyd Landis case. In May it held a hearing on charges that Iban Mayo tested positive for EPO at last year's Tour de France.
