Forde given two year ban

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has given Barbadian cyclist Barry Forde a two year ban after he tested positive for a high level of testosterone in October last year. Earlier this year, the Barbados cycling federation had decided not to sanction him, finding no evidence of deliberate wrongdoing. However, the UCI appealed to CAS, who banned Forde until December 2007.

Forde won a silver medal in the keirin at the Track World's in Los Angeles last year. He also won two gold medals at the Pan Am Games in 2003, but these were stripped from him after he tested positive for ephedrine. He was not given any further sanction for that offence.
