De Canio suspended

U.S. cyclist Matt De Canio has accepted a two year suspension with seven months deferment from the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after admitting that he used EPO and testosterone in May 2003. His suspension began on June 12, 2004, the date of his admission. De Canio served a voluntary one year suspension for the 2004 cycling season, which means that he can compete again on November 1, 2005. He will also forfeit his results and winnings from the 2003 Housatonic Valley Classic.
